Growing Cape Gooseberry, also Golden Berry, Inca Berry

28 Jun 17 Jack (Australia - temperate climate)
Growing up during the Forties gooseberries along with tomatoes grew wild in scrub country just off the road near our town. Did not seem to have pests in those days. My mother used to make jam and gooseberry pie. The pie was my favourite, absolutely delicious. I am having another go at growing again with one plant in the ground and another in a pot. Will have to protect from frosts and insects.
