Popular in Hungarian salads and other dishes, gooseberries look like peeled green grapes.
- The fruit called the "Cape gooseberry" is produced by the species Physalis peruviana in the family Solanaceae, native to the Andes.
- The fruit called the "Chinese gooseberry", now more commonly known as kiwifruit, is produced by the species Actinidia deliciosa, in the family Actinidiaceae. As its name implies, it was originally cultivated in China, but was taken to New Zealand, where cultivars were selected, and the fruit renamed kiwifruit. These are now grown in many areas, and marketed worldwide under that name - though the older name is sometimes still seen in Australia.
- The "Indian gooseberry" is produced by the species Phyllanthus emblica.
