A couple of culture resources for currants and gooseberries are:
Currants and gooseberries culture guide / Monique Audette and Michel J.
Lareau. Co-published by: Horticultural R&D Centre; Agriculture and Agri-Food
Canada, Research Branch.
Currant and Gooseberry Pests - A new photographic resource for diagnosing
diseases, insects and other disorders of currants and gooseberries, developed
by Kim Hummer and Joseph Postman, USDA/ARS National Clonal Germplasm
Small Scale Fruit Production - a manual from Penn State Cooperative Extension.
Covers: Controlling Wildlife Damage in the Home Fruit Garden; Pome Fruits:
Apples and Pears; Stone Fruits: Peaches, Nectarines, Plums, Apricots, and
Cherries; Grapes; Brambles; Strawberries; Blueberries; Gooseberries and
Currants; Elderberries; Hardy Kiwi. (Currants and gooseberries are chapter 10)
Small Fruits of New York, New York Agricultural Experiment Station, 1925 by U.
P. Hedrick. Pictorial archive of historic New York State fruit. Images are
arranged by type of fruit: Brambles (Red and Hybrid Raspberries; Black
Raspberries; Blackberries, Dewberries, Hybrid Berries), Bush Fruits (Currants,
Gooseberries), and Strawberries. Images are in JPEG format.
Go to USAIN's Access to Extension and Experiment Station Publications at:
I have the most success with the E-Answers and Plant Facts Database in finding
relevant extension publications on fruits.
FYI, currants and gooseberries are occasionally called 'bush fruits', so you
may want to look that term up, too.
I hope this helps,
