Limitations On Gooseberries

Why is it that gooseberries are not grown more in California? Is there

any reason, climatic or other, why the gooseberry should not be as

successfully grown in California as elsewhere?

There are two reasons. First, the gooseberry does not like interior

valleys, although with proper protection from mildew or by growing

resistant varieties, good fruit can be had in coast or mountain valleys.

Second, practically no one cares for a ripe gooseberry in a country

where so many other fruits are grown, and the demand is for green

gooseberries for pies and sauce, and that is very easily oversupplied.
