Gooseberries

(Ribes uva-crispa)

Easy to grow and suited to most soil types - home grown gooseberries taste much sweeter than often imagined, and should be found in every vegetable plot! They need siting carefully, to avoid frost damage to the early flowers, yet will benefit from a good airflow around them to help prevent mildew in the summer time. Flavours vary from sweet (see dessert varieties such as Pax and Rokula), to sharp ideal for jams, jellies, and sauces (such as Lancashire Lad, and Whitesmith).
