This vigorous, easily grown, high yielding variety is justifiably the most widely planted gooseberry variety.
The berries are large, oval, smooth skinned and ripen to a pale yellow colour. Flavour when both green and fully ripe is excellent. The growth is very vigorous, spreading and thorny; the variety rapidly reaches its full potential as a bush and can be successfully grown on wires.
Invicta has a yield potential double that of Careless and has some resistance to American gooseberry mildew but is vulnerable to Phytophtoria infection.
Invicta is unavailable this season due to propagation failure in the 2022 growing season.
