'Black Velvet' is a hybrid of gooseberry and worcesterberry. The dark fruit is small but full of flavor. The plant can get quite large and have heavy yields when planted in a site with consistent moisture.

If you've ever tried a gooseberry, you know how tart they can be. However, this one has sweet grape-like flavor, classifying it as a dessert gooseberry.
