When do I harvest my Gooseberry bush? How do I get to the fruit without getting caught with thorny spikes?

If the Goosebury is little soft to the touch when squeezed, they should be ready to harvest. Sometimes the easiest way to tell is to taste one. To get past the thorny spikes use thick gardening gloves, or shake the bush and pick them up from the floor.
