I’m a berry that grows
On shrubs with thorny spines,
In places with a cool weather,
And plenty of sunshine,
Or European my origin,
By eating me you’ll benefit in many ways;
Of that I am certain!
I’m mostly firm, round, ribbed,
But in types red, black, oval,
pear-shaped, elongated too I’m seen,
I come in ever so
Wild, cultivated, sour, sweet;
Your taste buds I’m sure to please!
I have a translucent skin
That’s smooth or hairy,
I’m filled with crunchy edible seeds
In a juicy pulp like other berries,
I’m packed with
Loads and loads of vitamin c,
I have fiber, some vital vitamins
And minerals too in me!
Mouth watering are my jams,
Juices, pickles and stews
I protect you from many
Deadly diseases attacking you,
My cousin the Indian gooseberry
Is very medicinal too,
Tell me my name now
That I have given you a good clue!
You’re called a gooseberry
although with a goose you have nothing to do.
