[NAFEX] Parting is such sweet sorrow

I hear it is cool and rainy out there this year. Is that true? It's blazing
hot and dry here. My gooseberries were small this year. Speaking of which,
if anyone has any recomendations for gooseberries with different flavors,
let me know. I have about 7 or 8 varieties, and they all seem exactly the
same to me except for Black Velvet and hinnomaki red. The BV is much darker
and very very good tasting than all my others. Unfortunately so far, low
yielding and a favorite of the sawflies. The HR has a very nice taste and is
a bit sweeter than the others. I don't really know what the other varieties
are, but I'm guessing they are things like invicta, poorman, and some from
OGW like red george and friend. They vary in productivity, but all have
reddish berries and taste pretty much the same.

I would love something that tasted as good as BV but was a bit more
productive.
