FAQs about gooseberries

Yes and no. The gooseberry has a parchment-like wrapping that protects it from insects and other bio-invasive threats. You need to unwrap the gooseberry from the parchment to get to the fruit. The fruit has a skin similar to grapes and gets eaten with the flesh. Some farmers remove the parchment before packing and shipping it to your neighborhood grocer, while others leave it on. 

Yes, gooseberries are low in calories and contain many nutrients, like Vitamin C, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, copper, manganese, and potassium. They are also packed with antioxidants, which are compounds scientists believe help fight free radicals that can cause cellular damage and disease. These antioxidants include flavonols, anthocyanins, aromatic acids, and organic acids that are linked to reducing the risk of certain types of cancer, heart disease, and Type 2 Diabetes. They also have anti-aging qualities that help protect your skin and improve brain function. 

Yes, many different varieties are commercially cultivated and sold. Your grocer may not label gooseberries by type, much like strawberries. Farmers often brand their packaging with the name of the farm and its region. So many varieties exist that it can be hard to determine quality by the variety's name alone. A few distinctions exist, like Careless, Greenfinch, Invicta, Leveller, and Whinham's Industry. If you are lucky enough to find these at your grocery store, you should buy them. These particular varieties have been awarded Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society and are excellent examples of gooseberries.
