Gooseberries & Currants

Picked up a few things at the nursery today.

First up is 'Poorman Gooseberry' - gooseberries have thorns. They're a deciduous shrub with thorns that give off good sized round fruit in the summer. I plan on getting a few more varieties in the future.

White Imperial Currant
Currants are in the same family as gooseberries. Also a deciduous shrub, there are no thorns and the berries are much smaller.
 Final plant to go in the ground today - Crandall Black Currant - apparently has a nice orange foliage in the fall. I'm gonna need to pick up a post so I can bring one of the branches over.
