white pine blister rust http://hppr.org en Gooseberries. You hate 'em or you love 'em http://hppr.org/post/gooseberries-you-hate-em-or-you-love-em <p>These little green orbs are kissin' cousins to the currant, and like their relatives they can be welcomed or reviled in the U.S.&nbsp; They make great pies, jellies, jams, and sauces for the table, but they can also transport a destructive fungus called 'white pine blister rust'.&nbsp; If your locale doesn't feature white pines then gooseberry bushes might make a good berry bramble for you, especially if you like your sweets a little on the tart side.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 20 Sep 2012 15:30:00 +0000 Skip Mancini 6325 at http://hppr.org Gooseberries.
