Origins

Incan berries (Physalis peruviana), also known as ‘Golden Berries’, are native to the Amazonian regions of South America, where they were used as a traditional source of food and medicine for centuries. Today they are also cultivated in South Africa, England and Turkey. The small, yellow/orange berries are slightly larger than raisins and crammed with crunchy, lemon-flavoured seeds, which give them their distinct sweet and sour flavour.

Quantity and Dosage

Enjoy a small handful (approx. 10 grams) of organic Incan berries each day. Store in a sealed container in a cool, dry place and once open, consume within 2 months.

Facts

  • The Incan berry is also known as the Golden Berry, Cape Gooseberry, Aztec Berry and Peruvian Ground Cherry
  • As well as being called Incan berries, they're also known as Cape Gooseberries, agauaymanto berries or Goldenberries. Locally called mullaca, uvilla, uchuva, the plant is an annual herb indigenous to many parts of the tropics, including the Amazon. It can be found on most continents in the tropics, including Africa, Asia, and the Americas. It grows up to 1 m high, bears small, cream-colored flowers, and produces small, light yellowish-orange, edible fruit. The leaves of the plant have many ethnobotanical uses around the world.
  • The Incan berry is one of the first plants to pioneer degraded areas. Its robustness and adaptability could lead to cultivation in many now unused marginal areas.
  • The fruit is found in markets from Venezuela to Chile, and the plants have been grown on limited scale around the world in warm climates. When growing, the berries are protected by papery husks resembling Chinese lanterns. Currently in areas where they are grown they are largely regarded as backyard fruits for children, but upscale European markets pay premium prices for them, dipping them in chocolate to decorate pastries. They make excellent jams, which are popular in India and Africa.

  • Sparkles in a berry

    Angela | 4/9/14

    Gorgeous product. We in my family call these the sparkly berries. I have a 2 and 6 year old who actually say sparkly berries please mummy because they sort of have a bitter/sweet taste that somehow leaves you wanting more. knowing they are really good for you too is a bonus. Plus they are so soft and chewy, lovely.
