Mar 13, 2004 | 10:03 1 Can anyone provide information on Gooseberrys and production. I understand that their are some grape sized ones out there some where with the eating quality similar to Kiwi Fruit. Thanks Reply With Quote

They are available from McGinnis Berry Nursery in B.C. and I encourage you to visit their website for details: http://www.berrycrops.net/pages/home.htm

Also, Quebec produces an excellent culural guide that is available in English. I believe it is only about $10 and to order contact CPVQ at 418-831-7474 and ask to order "Currant and Gooseberries Culture Guide". The authors are Monique Audette and Michel J. Lareau
Good luck. Reply With Quote
