Oregon Champion Gooseberry starts bearing flavorful berries in its second year and will produce for 20 years. Pale yellowish-green, medium to large berries sweeten as they ripen. A heavy producer, Oregon Champion is mildew resistant and the fruit holds well on the bush. Best for the Northwest. Great all purpose variety, but delicious eaten straight out of hand. We are unable to ship gooseberries to ME, NC and SC.
