Anyone growing Indian gooseberry in the West?
I would like to grow the Indian gooseberry, Phyllanthus emblica. It is known as amla or amalaki in Sanskrit.
It is a medium-sized deciduous tree with small fruit that look very much like the European gooseberry, Ribes grossularia, but is not related. It is a member of the euphorbiaceae family.
It grows well in the plains and foothils of northern India and Afghanistan and the foothills of the Himalayas. It tolerates snow and freezing.
Has anyone tried this in Europe or the Americas?
