Cape Gooseberry

Cape Gooseberry

SKU: A22

One of my favourite berrys in my garden, Cape gooseberrys are an unusual plant. In warm locations they are perennial , while in cooler locations you’ll want to save seeds . Tall stems grow similar to a fuzzy tomato plant, bearing delightful papery shelled lanterns , each filled with a single golden berry. They have a tart, tangy taste similar to tropical fruits. The fruit never makes it to my kitchen but I have been told it makes an excellent syrup to add to soda water , and is often used in pies and jams.
