Man grows world record heaviest gooseberry

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

It is the "Holy Grail" of gooseberry growing, according to the man who has broken a world record for the heaviest gooseberry.

Graeme Watson's prize-winning fruit weighed in at 64.56g, beating the previous record set in 2013 of 64.49g.

The 59-year-old, from Ainthorpe, North Yorkshire, is a member of the Egton Bridge Old Gooseberry Society.

He was crowned champion at their annual show beating about 30 other competitors.

i love gooseberry, too bad they almost do not exist in usa, once in a blue moon i see them in a store, but it tastes like grass,   the ones i tried in Russia and Ukraine were much much better, but they are normally not much bigger than a cherry, we tried to grow it in upstate, but it did not work out

Wow that's a big gooseberry! The ones around here don't get that big.
