Gooseberry Facts

Gooseberry bushes includes several species of Ribes, or Currant. Common names for these Gooseberry bushes are usually specific to a particular species of Ribes, such as Common Gooseberry for Ribes uva crispa, Hedge Gooseberry for Ribes alpestris, Prickly Gooseberry for Ribes cynosbati, Japanese Gooseberry for Ribes grossularioides, and North American Gooseberry for Ribes hirtellum. Some hybrids have been cultivated, such as Jostaberry, a hybrid between Ribes uva crispa, or Common Gooseberry and Ribes nigrum, or Black Currant. Gooseberry bushes from the Ribes genus are not at all to be confused with any of the species of Gooseberry Tree of the genus Phyllanthus, such as Phyllanthus acidus, commonly called Star Gooseberry, and Phyllanthus emblica, commonly called Indian Gooseberry, and Phyllanthus niruri, commonly called Chanca Piedra, to name a few.
