    Currants and gooseberries are hardy and easy to grow. A few plants will produce enough fruit for typical family use, and this fruit is much prized for making jellies and pies. Currants are especially outstanding for jellies, while goose­ berries are excellent for pies or preserves. Gooseberry pie is a rare delicacy seldom found outside the home. In the United Kingdom, several species of aphids infest the foliage and young shoots of currants and gooseberry and 1 species lives on the roots. The most important species frequently cause much crumpling of the leaves and stunting of the young shoots during spring and early summer. Severe attacks may result in premature leaf-fall and small fruit.
