Another couple of links...
I know I haven't written a full article in a while, but I'm in the home stretch of my last class ever at the moment, and I have better things to do, so you'll have to deal with just getting these selected links posted periodically. I've got a pair of them today, both bilingual.
First is a great little site on gooseberries. Hardly any Americans eat gooseberries these days, though they remain quite popular in the U.K. and Northern Europe. I'm not sure if Americans lost their taste for gooseberries and the related currants when there was mass eradication of Ribes to control White Pine Blister Rust, or if we never liked them much. Certainly they lack the bland sweetness that currently characterizes many Americans' tastes in fruit. Anyway, the sites in Dutch, too, if that's your thing (though I have yet to meet any one Dutch who didn't have near-perfect English). The same site has a little info on black currants and sweetberry honeysuckle, but the gooseberries are the real strength.
The other site I want to point out is a nice all-around fruit site in both French and English: Pomologie.com. If I get the time, I'll be adding it to the sidebar today. It's got a wide range of info on modern and heirloom cultivars, culture and nutrition, and quite a bit scanned from old fruit texts. I was pleased to see they even have a scanned copy of the strawberry chapter from one of my favorite old fruit books, the 1867 edition of Andrew Fuller's The Small Fruit Culturist. The web design is a little crazy, but easily worth wading through.
