I have wild gooseberries around my property and I would like to harvest them but I don't know what they look like when ripe, in other words, when should they be picked.

Don't let them get completely ripe or you will lose them to the birds. Now is the time to pick them--I picked enough for 2 pies off one bush two days ago--maybe will make pies tonight.
