time to time and a new one allowed to develop, but care should
he taken to prune out most of the suckers so that too many new
eanes will not develop. A good proportion of the wood on
each bush should be from 3 to 5 years old, as the best fruit is
bonie on wood of this age.

§ 19 CURRANTS AND GOOSEBERRIES 69

66. Fertilizers for Gooseberries. — ^To give good results,
gooseberry bushes must be well fed and the soil about them must
be made rich in organic matter. Cow manure, about a pitch-
forkful to a bush, is one of the best fertilizer materials to apply-
to gooseberries; this should be appHed in the fall and worked
into the groimd the following spring. This may be supple-
mented with liberal applications of ground bone or basic slag,
with some potassic fertilizer such as muriate of potash, and with
dried blood or tankage. If enough manure can be secured, the
application of this alone will produce the best results.



GOOSEBERRY TROUBLES
67. Insects and Diseases Attacking Gooseberries.

Gooseberries are subject to the same insects and diseases that
attack currants, with the addition of one more disease, the
well-known gooseberry mildew. In Fig. 30 is shown a
section of a gooseberry plant attacked by mildew, the cane,
leaves, and fruit all being affected. This disease is a serious
one with the European gooseberries. It attacks both the foliage
and the fruit, causing them first to assume a white, frost-like
appearance, and later to turn brown. In some seasons, for
imaccountable reasons, there is freedom from this disease, and
in other seasons, in spite of all that can be done, the mildew
will destroy the crop.

To avoid and prevent, as much as possible, the ravages of the
mildew, the gooseberry plantation should be properly located
and well cultivated, and the bushes should be well pruned and
systematically sprayed. The plantation should be located so
that it will have proper air drainage, or a good circulation of
air about the bushes, and proper soil drainage. For this
reason, low, flat lands or places where there is a poor circulation
of air should be avoided. The ground around the bushes
should be constantly cultivated, and care should be taken to
keep the ground free from weeds, especially under the bushes,
imtil after picking time, in order to permit the circulation of air
arotmd the plants. All low, drooping branches should be
pruned back for the same reason.

70 CURRANTS AND GOOSEBERRIES § 19

68. Spraying of Gooseberries. — The first two sprayings
for the gooseberry should be the same as those for the currant.



Pig. 30

Then, as soon as the fruit is set, the plants should be thoroughly
sprayed with a 1 to 35 lime-sulphur solution (specific gra\nty
1 .008, that is, concentrated lime-sulphur solution of 33° Baum^

diluted 1 to 35 with water) or with a solution of 1 ounce of
potassium sulphide in 2 gallons of water; both the upper and
the under surfaces of the foUage should be well covered. These
spra)dngs should be repeated at intervals of 10 days until the
fruit is harvested. Even in spite of all that can be done, how-
ever, the mildew will sometimes destroy the crop. After the
fruit is harvested the bushes should be sprayed with 4-5-50
Bordeaux mixture (4 poimds of copper sulphate, 5 poimds of
stone lime, water slaked, 50 gallons of water). If any insects
are present, 2 poimds of arsenate of lead may be added to this
spray.

HARVESTING AND MARKETING

69. Gooseberries are harvested both green and ripe. The
advantages in favor of picking and marketing this fruit green
are: (1) The hard, green fruit is not as easily injured in
picking and packing as the pulpy, ripe fruit, and it will stand
transportation better. (2) The fruit that is allowed to ripen
on the bushes is exposed longer to attacks of sun scald and mil-
dew, and should long-continued rain follow a period of drought,
the ripening fruit is liable to crack and spoil. (3) The ripening
of the fruit and seed is an exhaustive process which may result
in a reduced crop the following year and from which the bush
is partly relieved when the fruit is marketed green. (4) The
proceeds received from the sale of the green fruit usually com-
pare favorably with the proceeds received from the ripe fruit,
although the large, ripe fruit of the English varieties sometimes
brings the highest prices of the season; as a general rule, how-
ever, the early prices for green gooseberries are usually as good,
or even better, than the prices of ripe fruit. There is no reason
why an individual could not work up a high-class trade for
ripe gooseberries in a local market, if he can figure that the
drawbacks just mentioned can be more than cotmterbalanced
by the extra price he can get.

The picking of gooseberries is not pleasant work because of
the spines on the branches, but with some practice and a little
skill, the work may be done without much trouble. When the
fruit is harvested green, the common method of picking is to

72 CURRANTS AND GOOSEBERRIES § 19

lift a branch with the left hand, and rapidly strip off the green
fruit along with the foliage with the right. The right hand
should be protected with a thick mitten or a soft leather glove.
After the fruit is picked in this way it should be run through
a fanning mill to get rid of the leaves and twigs, and then packed
into baskets for market. When picked green in this way the
fruit can be shipped almost any distance and arrive at its
destination in first-class condition.

If gooseberries are allowed to ripen before they are picked
they must be handled much more carefully than just described.
They should not be bruised nor their skins broken.

Pickers are usually paid from IJ to IJ cents per quart and
will pick on an average from 60 to 100 quarts per day.

No system of grading or packing has been evolved for goose-
berries. The fruit is shipped, according to the requirements of
the different markets, like currants, either in grape baskets or
in quart baskets.

No attempts are usually made to hold the gooseberry crop
either in common or in cold storage, and owing to the limited
quantity grown no definite market methods have been evolved.

The prices for gooseberries in the New York market vary
from $1.75 to $2 per bushel, and sometimes go much higher. In
markets where gooseberries are sold by the poxmd, they will
bring from 4 to 10 cents per ix)und, depending on the variety
and on market conditions.

The largest market for the fruit is at the canning factories.
