Everything there is to Love about Cape Gooseberries


Cape Gooseberry is the name given to this plant that I grew up with when spending many years living in Africa.  But this delicious little fruit has other names too!  

Depending on where you live, they are known by all these different names – ground cherry, poha berry, strawberry tomato, husk tomato, gooseberry tomato, Peruvian Cape gooseberry, purple ground cherry and of course the proper name of Physalis edulis. 

This small, smooth round fruit is wrapped in a papery case that resembles a Chinese lantern. They have a delicate sweet-sour taste – sort of a cross between a gooseberry and a cherry tomato.
