Description

The Cape Gooseberry is an unusual plant. It comes from South America and is not actually a gooseberry.

The fruit has an unusual but generally pleasant taste somewhere between a gooseberry, tomato and cherry – sweet with a slight tang.

The fruits come encased in a calyx, which turns brown when the fruit is ready.

The berries are very nutritious as they contain high levels of protein and vitamins C, A and B12.

They are also a good source of cacarotenoids, which can help protect against cancer and heart disease.

Germination rate is around 25% and the seeds take about two weeks to sprout.

The plants are self fertile and wind pollinating.

Fruits develop inside a calyx that turns from green to yellow, and then brown once the fruit is ready to eat.

The ripe fruit can be stored for up to a month.
