Cape Gooseberries

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Cape gooseberries are native to South America, and they’re closely related to the tomatillo. They make delicious jams, pies or a beautiful fall garnish. Cape Gooseberries are a pretty golden color and are about the size of a large marble. The fruit is delicately covered by a husk similar to a tomatillo.

They are full of seeds with a texture and flavor similar to a tomato but with a deeper flavor and a hint of tartness.  The unusual taste has been compared to various combinations of tomato, strawberry, mango, pineapple, fig, grape and more.

How to enjoy Cape Gooseberries!
Cape gooseberries can be eaten out of hand or cooked, and they work well in savory and sweet dishes. Add to a salad, chop for a salsa, roast in the oven or make them into jam. They store well when they are left in their husks. Now available in a 4# case!
