Phyllanthus emblica or ‘Indian Gooseberry’ is a small to medium-sized, semi-deciduous tree native to southern Asia with small leaves in a pinnate arrangement and cherry to apricot sized fruits that are very popular in Asia despite being sour, astringent and somewhat bitter.

They are used fresh, pickled, candied, in chutneys, for baking or seasoning. They are high in Vitamin C and have many uses in traditional medicine, as do other parts of the plant. This tree  is subtropical and will withstand frosts as well as hot temperatures.

    Soak the seeds in a bowl of water overnight to determine which seeds are viable. Sow the seeds that sink to the bottom and discard those that float to the top. Soak the Indian gooseberry seeds for five minutes in a bowl of hot water, which can improve the chance of germination. Cover the bowl with a dish towel to help hold in the heat. Drain the seeds and sow them immediately.

    Fill 4-inch pots with a mixture of half potting soil and half compost. Pour water onto the soil mixture until it feels moderately moist throughout. Sow one Indian gooseberry seed in each pot at a depth of roughly 1/4 inch.

    Place the pots indoors near a large window or outdoors inside an unventilated, lightly shaded cold frame. Warm the pots to 80 degrees Fahrenheit with a propagation mat if temperatures drop below 70 F.

    Check the soil mixture twice daily to ensure it never fully dries out. Water to a 2-inch depth if the soil feels barely moist just beneath the surface. Avoid letting the soil dry out, but also try to avoid making it soggy.

    Watch for the first seedlings in roughly three weeks. Remove the propagation mat once the seeds germinate. Grow the seedlings under bright, sheltered conditions until after the last spring frost.

    Grow the Indian gooseberry seedlings under dappled shade for their first summer with one to two inches of water each week. Slowly aclimate them to stronger sunlight in late summer. Transplant them into a permanent bed or planter in autumn.
