If you are not yet familiar with Golden Berries, you may be under the assumption that they are berries. Funnily enough, they are not.
Golden Berries are a delicious superfood that, in recent years, is making way into many culinary creations and food productions. They also go by the name cape gooseberry or physalis peruviana. (Not to be confused with gooseberries, that resembles a grape when growing and a currant when dried.)
These bright orange fruits are naturally wrapped in a paper-like husk that is removed before eating, similar to the tomatillo. While many may think their name makes them a berry, they are classified as part of the nightshade family.
Be sure to check out our introduction to the golden berry blog for more information.
Golden Berries are unique in that they have a sweet yet tart taste. They could serve as a salad topper, be delicious as part of a spice packet for fish, or blended into a smoothie for sweetness and nutrition, among many other flavorful combinations.
Our customers have said they think Seawind’s golden berries offer the perfect balance of a sweet yet tart flavor profile.
