Our Indian Gooseberry is finally fruiting. It has lovely ferny leaves and produces a good health giving berry. I think we might transfer it from tub to the ground.

Yes, it is the reason most Indian women probably have lovely long hair.  I believe it rejuvenates hair loss as well.

Another thought is that it improves cholesterol problems, and it makes an excellent chutney.  I am hoping to find an Indian person who can help me with using it's good health properties.
