What are the pros? Great, unique flavor
What are the cons? Not for cold climates
I love cape gooseberries! They are bigger than the Aunt Molly's ground cherry and have better flavor, in my opinion. They seem to do okay in containers and with less than full sun.
I think cape gooseberries would be challenging with a short growing season. I planted mine along with my tomatoes in April, and I'm getting the first ripe berries at the end of August. I believe they are perennials here in California.
