There are 73 people in the U.S. listed on whitepages.com with the last name 'Gooseberry'
(Mark Morton, 'Gastronomica', Fall 2010)
Though this intriguing berry grows wild in many locations throughout the continental United States, it's generally cultivated in tropical zones such as Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Asia, and Central and South America. At first glance the cape gooseberry with its inflated, papery skin, looks somewhat like a Chinese lantern. The bittersweet, juicy berries that hide inside the skin are opaque and golden in color. Imported cape gooseberries are available from March to July.
The English had a passion for gooseberries and in colonial days gooseberry wines, pies and puddings were very popular. However, today many of those recipes have all but disappeared from cookbooks.
Gooseberries are cultivated on a commercial scale in Oregon, but the vast majority of the crop is canned. Fresh berries are usually imported and are found in specialty produce markets. The popularity of gooseberries has been increasing over the past few years and fresh berries are becoming easier to find. The berries taste of a sweet tangy mixture of pineapple and strawberry.
