This is a spiny and vigorous relative of the gooseberry family. An excellent candidate for a good stock proof hedge, its origins are in North America so we do not know how it came by its name, but it is tough and disease resistant, content in sun or shade and can get to 2m given the chance.
The fruits are like small black gooseberries and are produced in large quantities. They make excellent eating either raw or cooked
