The Berry Best

Golden Berries

You know strawberries and blueberries, but have you heard of golden berries? These bite-sized fruits taste as sweet as pineapple and mango. Interestingly enough, they are closely related to the tomatillo as they are wrapped in a papery husk. Also known as Inca berry or Peruvian groundcherry, they belong to the nightshade family and grow in tropical climates around the world.

  1. Rinse with water before eating.
  2. Eat them fresh on their own as a snack.
