Thanks for pointing out the previous post, I am much less confused now.

Interestingly I have never seen a fresh gooseberry or plant in the US, at least in the eastern seaboard where I live. In some states (NJ and others) it is illegal to import fresh berries even from others such as California where they are grown.

Western Australia, Goosberry plant from nursery $175
A certain risk
Gooseberries need a negative temperature to fruit well.
(Good frosts)

And have pretty savage thorns. Is $175 the common cost for plants? It seems very expensive or maybe I'm just out of touch with the cost of gooseberry plants!

Hi Crispin,
I chose the price of an advanced plant.

Dormant cane $11
The Thornless Gooseberry (Ribes uva-crispa) is a hardy deciduous shrub that bears large yellow/green berries on almost thornless stems. The fruit are tart but quite tasty, and can be used to make wonderful jams jellies and dessert pies. Thornless Gooseberries will grow in most soils but prefers a mild Summer and a cold Winter to ensure adequate fruit set. Self pollinating so only one plant will produce a good yield.

Supplied as a dormant cane.

Perth Aust has a 0 degree celsius winter, 40-42 degree celsius summer
I don't like the odds

When we were kids, we'd munch the ones from the bushes in the local park. Then wondered why we had stomach ache later! See also "crab apples".

I remember Sierra Gooseberries growing wild in the mountains (Sierra Nevada in California) when I was a kid.

Hi,

The only set I have from Cuba. Bought in 1936 and given to me by the original owner. Free Zone. Little montage from my archive.

Salutations

Hornet

Ah! nice set indeed Hornet,
The MATANZAS Issue.

I have that set unmounted at the moment,
Circa 1929 - 1933 Cuban stamps appear to be heavily postmarked with slogans
so my set is woeful.

After 1933 Circular date stamps seem to re-appear.
