Robes pinetorum - Orange Gooseberry is part of the Grossulariaceae (Currant) family. The birds and deer really love this berry. It is one of the important food sources for them. This ones grows every where in the woods, if you know where to look. Although the bloom season is over for this season, the fruits are now ripening and turning a deeper color. Remember to leave the flora as they are and only take pictures. The mountain is recovering from a fire last year and the wildlife is finally receiving the food sources they need to survive.
