hi, i recently bought some gooseberry seeds, as ive been wanting for a long time to grow gooseberries, like what my late great grandparents grew in their garden back in germany. Imediately after planting some in seed trays on my window sill, as i was mowing the lawn i discovered a wild gooseberry-like plant growing next to one of the small trees we had planted around the backyard. normally i would rip it out and toss it aside, however i now recognise the fruit, it is exactly the same as a gooseberyy, with the cape, fruit shape and fruit-flesh-seeding similar to that of a pashionfruit. I want to confirm this plant is in fact a gooseberry bush, and not a poisnonous lookalike. attached is an image i took.
Hello everyone, I received this plant (attached) as a gift one year from a friend I have since lost touch with. I'd love to know what it is. Every year around January I springs to life and produces this awesome purple spiky flower and "dies" a few months later, only to bounce back again the next year. It is only a foot tall and lives in a pot. I recently transferred it to a bigger pot and noticed the root system was made of large, potato-like root bulbs. It got me curious, but I had no luck identifying it online. Now I just want to know what it is. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated. Thanks for your time, Adam
