Am I allowed to plant gooseberries? Some online nurseries don't ship to DE. Are they invasive? Is there a cultivar that isn't?
New Castle County Delaware
Gooseberries are the alternate host for white pine blister rust (a fungal disease that affects white pine). Here is a fact sheet from Ohio State: http://ohioline.osu.edu/factsheet/HYG-3205.
Delaware requires a permit to grow gooseberries. See below:
- Black currant Prohibited
Permit required for all others
