Peruvian groundberry, Goldenberry, Husk cherry, Poha berry(Eng.), Appelliefie (Afr)
Closely related to the tomato & Chinese lantern, the Cape gooseberry grows beautifully smooth berries, each enclosed by a papery straw-coloured husk. The berries are sweet when ripe & are often enjoyed in salads or made into jams. The Cape gooseberries originate not from Southern Africa's Cape province, but from another Cape in South America!
