Currants and gooseberries are hardy and easy to grow. A few plants will produce enough fruit for typical family use, and this fruit is much prized for making jellies and pies. Currants are especially outstanding for jellies, while gooseberries are excellent for pies or preserves. Gooseberry pie is a rare delicacy seldom found outside the home.
