Gooseberries

The sharp sweetness of gooseberries is perfect for summer desserts and pies. Planting and feeding requirements are the same as for currants, and if the crop is heavy, thin the fruits in late spring. Every winter, cut back the main stems by half to an outward-facing bud, and prune the side shoots to one bud from the main stems (beware of the spines). Keep the plants well watered and harvest ripe fruit in summer.
