Ribes grossularia or uva-crispa (Gooseberry)
Historical Brendel Plant Models, Botany Department, University of Otago
Native to parts of Asia, Africa and Europe, the gooseberry or Ribes grossularia (now uva-crispa), was cultivated in England from the 13th century. The flowers grow singly or in pairs and from each a berry develops. Gooseberry bushes can tolerate a cold climate but prefer full sun and they fruit in New Zealand from November to February.
