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.

Hello Christa, I saw this previous post about Indian Gooseberrry. this fruit is very good for the immune system. can you please let me know whether you sell this fruit or not? where can I buy this plant?

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.
