    Is it a physalis? Is it a cape gooseberry? Is it a Peruvian groundcherry? Well yes it’s all three actually. Here’s everything you need to know about the golden berry!

    Golden berries are indigenous to the Andes Mountains (Western South America), and are currently grown in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile. Golden berries grow on hardy shrubs which can tolerate extreme environments as high as 10,000 feet above sea level. Golden berries grow best in areas that get plenty of sunlight and soil drainage.

    As with anything dried, the flavours deeply condense, dramatizing the already not-shy flavour of the golden berry. Like a sweet and sour candy, golden berries explode on the palate, and with each chew bring a new swash of zesty flavour.

    Golden berries are considered a superfood, being low in calories, high in antioxidants, and with moderate levels of vitamins and minerals.

    Fun Fact: In French, the golden berry is known as amour en cage (love in a cage), referring to it's paper wrapper.
