The gooseberry (Ribes uva-crispa) grows as a rather small shrub up to one meter high, the branches have thorns. In the Austrian vernacular, the gooseberry is also known under the term Agrasel. The up to two centimeters large, spherical to egg-shaped fruits belong together with the currant to the gooseberry family (Grossulariaceae), genus Ribes. The flower base is usually still clearly visible on the fruit. Depending on the variety, the fruit peel is covered with more or less downy hair, the color ranges from whitish to green to yellow to light brown or red. Their recognizable white vertical stripes in the fruit skin are typical. When ripe, the berries taste sweet and sour and are particularly juicy. The numerous seeds inside are edible.

Note The josta berry was created from a cross between currant and gooseberry.

The sour note is due to the malic and citric acid (fruit acids) it contains.
