The Incan Goldenberry (Physalis peruviana) is native to South America but more commonly known as the Cape Gooseberry. Fresh berries are bright yellow and very sweet when ripe.
The health enhancing benefits have been recognized through the ages with global explorers carried Goldenberry seeds on their travels to ensure a rapid growing, nutrient rich fresh fruit source upon finding land (eg. ‘poha' in Hawaiian).
