Are they sweet? They look similar to grapes.

Gooseberries grow on low bushes, often very prickly. The fruit can be tart, esp the green varieties, but these are really sweet.

Hi Skippy
~According to an online blurb they say Gooseberries are regarded as a quintessentially British fruit but we didn't actually have them here until the 13th Century from Europe-apparently can be grown right up to the Arctic Circle~got some recipes on UKTV FOOD which sound lovely~I may very well look into getting some bushes next year,also some blackcurrants.
I remember as a kid picking all kinds of fruit from my aunties garden for pies!~
