Part of the Peruvian and Chillean cuisine, physalis grows in the Peruvian Andes in mineral rich soils. Goldenberries or Incan berries are an ancient fruit, a lost crop of the Incas. They used to incorporate this fruit in their diet, as it has a high nutritional content and is great when consumed before battle or strenuous activities.
Our organic goldenberries have a bright, sweet and acidic taste that makes them a great snack by themselves as well as perfect partners to desserts, smoothies, yogurt and salads. We love them in trail mixes like our exotic Machu Pichu trail mix. They're also rich in pectin, which makes them perfect for pies, preserves and jams. Add it to a balanced diet and reap the benefits of this mystical little fruit!
Can be preserved in a cool, dry cupboard, protected from light and humidity for up to 12 months.
Physalis are part of the nightshade (Solanaceae) family, which makes it a relative of tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants and peppers.
