Star gooseberry is a type of fruit. There are both sour and sweet varieties. They are often pickled, welded, or preserved.
Star gooseberry is eaten fresh and is occasionally used as a flavoring for other dishes. It is candied in sugar or pickled in salt or preserves. It is used to make vinegar and is also eaten raw after being soaked in salt or a vinegar-salt solution.
Star Gooseberry is available between June and August.
