Gooseberries - Picture Of The Day 1-16-2013

I have 3 green and 3 red gooseberry bushes. They are 5 years old.

Here is one of the bushes. You can see the berries in development.
I like them because they produce ripe berries relatively early in the season.

The green gooseberries get small caterpillars that eat the young leaves. The red gooseberries don't have this issue. 

I get about 6 pints of berries. I eat them fresh or make jam out of them. 

The bushes have sharp thorns but they are easy to avoid.
