Howdy Everyone!

Hey, I'm visiting family near Colorado Springs, CO and while helping them clear weeds and overgrowth, I discovered two berry bushes that I cannot identify.

Can anyone out there help me, please? It appears that they have been purposely planted by the previous owner. Here's some photos. Boy, the leaf pattern sure reminds me of cilantro and the berries themselves aren't much bigger than a fingernail. Berries are green but are turning red/purple.

Thanks for your help!

I hope you confirmed it! I haven't seen a Gooseberry in person in over 60 years. Hilarious!

That was what I thought too when I saw the picture.
Politicians are like diapers, they need to be changed often, and for the same reason.
