(Cape gooseberry; Husk cherry; Goldenberry) Golden super berries! High in protein, iron, and
vitamins A, B, and C, this berry from the Andes is deservedly getting a new look as a super food.
Small golden fruits about the size of a marble are borne inside papery husks. The taste is mellow
and tart, not particularly sweet but delicious and refreshing. They are eaten fresh or in fruit
salads, pies, chutneys, and they are excellent for jams and jellies owing to their high pectin
content. Sauce made with the berries is pure bliss with seafood. Fresh berries dipped in melted
chocolate are something to die for. Needs well-drained soil and full sun. Do not fertilize,
otherwise the fruits will fail to mature properly. Fruits are harvested when they fall to the ground
and their protective husks are removed before use. Fresh berries keep for months when
refrigerated in a sealed container. 70-80 days.
