My dad has an old gooseberry bush. A couple of years ago, he noticed that after the gooseberries had finished, some dark berries formed near the top
of the plant. This has been happening for a couple of years now. Looking at he bush, the branches near the top have slightly different leaves, that
looks like currant bush leaves.
I spoke to an horticulturalist at college and he said that this might be some sort of reversion, and I need to find out the ancestor of the gooseberry
bush to find out what the berries were. He suspected that they were currants.
Has anyone else ever seen a gooseberry bush do this?
