Incan Golden Berries (Gooseberries)

$11.95

Incan Golden Berries (Raw, Gooseberries)

Size

These berries are currently organic, grown harmonically with nature. Cultivated in the Incan Empire in days past, these fully-ripe, sun-dried incan berries (or goldenberries, or Cape Gooseberry) are sweet with an awesome tart zest and contain small chewable seeds.

Incan Berries or Goldenberries are also called cape gooseberry or agauaymanto berry. Locally called mullaca, uvilla, uchuva, the plant is an annual herb indigenous to many parts of the tropics, including the Amazon. It can be found on most continents in the tropics, including Africa, Asia, and the Americas. It grows up to 1 m high, bears small, cream-colored flowers, and produces small, light yellowish-orange, edible fruit. The leaves of the plant have many ethno botanical uses around the world. The goldenberry is one of the first plants to pioneer degraded areas. Its robustness and adaptability could lead to cultivation in many now unused marginal areas.

The fruit is found in markets from Venezuela to Chile, and the plants have been grown on limited scale around the world in warm climates. Incan or Goldenberries are succulent golden fruits the size of marbles. They are protected by papery husks resembling Chinese lanterns. Currently in areas where they are grown they are largely regarded as backyard fruits for children, but upscale European markets pay premium prices for them, dipping them in chocolate to decorate pastries. They make excellent jams, which are popular in India and Africa.

Man, these berries are super tart, but they are quite tasty; indeed tasty. I chose to eat them alone instead of mixing them with other berries or seeds; they are overpowering. I shall buy more in the future, though.
