Gooseberry picking

(0 ratings)
Gooseberries
Tangy and sweet, gooseberries are at their tastiest in June and July when they're perfectly ripe. Kids will love trying out this new, hairy berry, especially if they've just picked them from the field. They're also excellent in our easy gooseberry fool or galette.

The gooseberry-picking season varies from farm to farm, so check on the website or call the number listed below, before visiting.
