What are the pros? Love them

What are the cons? none


Well, I have just ordered these from this company, but I know this fruit from way back in South Africa. I laughed when I saw the comment by a reviewer that the flavor is bizarre! If you are expecting a sweet berry you might think that. The flavor is usually tart and unusual, and when you get used to them amazingly delicious. These berries are also reputedly very high in Vitamin C. One of the highest. And probably a low glycemic index as well for diabetics. I am excited to grow these again after so many, many years. On a visit to Africa hiking in the Drakensberg mountains I came across gooseberries growing wild, and it made me resolve to look for seed and grow them in California where I live.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
