Cape Gooseberries taste incredible: tart, sweet, so bright and tropical like citrus. Unlike Ground Cherries, their fruit does not fall on the ground when ripe. They are originally from Brazil but long ago naturalized in high-altitude, tropical Peru and Chile. They get this name from having been grown in the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa for a couple hundred years. In its native Peru, it is called “Aguaymanto” and “Uvilla”.
