How to Grow Gooseberries

Though gooseberries are native to northern Europe, Britain in particular adopted them and gooseberry pies, fools, tarts and jellies were devised. They are easy to grow in the right climate – Tablelands, in southern New Zealand, and parts of southern Australia are ideal.

The sweet fruit is eaten raw, while the acid fruit is better for cooking and making jam and wine.

The Southern Hemisphere has become the source of many great wines, and the wine grape is very much at home here. Table grapes are just as successful, long-lived and productive. Grapes take up very little space.

Such a vine-covered pergola creates the perfect outdoor dining room, especially during the long summer months.
