Another summer favourite

Cape gooseberry - sharp yet sweet, seedy and juicy, tastes of summer.......... I love these little fruits  in their individual brown crinkling cases, very beautiful to look at. I buy them when they're reduced in price usually, as they are well ripened then, the flavour fully devloped. I like them raw, sucked straight out of their wee cases, but the mke a very good jam as well, should you happen on enough to do so all at one time. I have grown them in the greenhouse too - not a roaring success (I suspect they need a really long and hot summer to develop and ripen properly), but I did get a few, so was pleased enough with that.
Anyone else love them?
