How to Sow
Cape gooseberries need warm soil temperatures to germinate. They also love warm growing conditions and will continue to bear fruit for more than one year if protected from frost. You must allow the seeds to get some light for germination, so starting them in containers is easiest.
How to Harvest
Collect the fruit after the papery outer husk has dried. They should separate from the plant with only a small amount of pressure. You may need to leave the berries to ripen for a little longer to get the golden-yellow colour you crave. Remember to check under the bushes for any berries that have fallen.
