Pasture Gooseberry

Ribes cynosbati




Gooseberries are found in openings in woods and fields.  They flower from April to August and produce edible fruit from June to September.  Gooseberries have one to three thorns at the bases of leafstalks and clusters of one to five bristly fruit firmly joined to their stalks.  The berries are yellow, red, or purple to black in color.  The gooseberry is a low, erect, or sprawling shrub.
