Cape Gooseberry

Cape Gooseberry or Inca Berry


Choose brightly colored gooseberries with dry capes and without mould or soft spots.

Harvest cape gooseberries from July to September, when the husks have turned brittle and pale brown, and the fruits are bright orange.


Store cape gooseberries unwashed in the refrigerator for 5-7 days. Rinse before using.

Store the fruits in their husks in a warm, dry place – they will keep for several weeks. Cut the plant down to ground level after harvesting to keep it going from year to year, or dig plants up and put them on the compost heap.


Low fat, cholesterol free, sodium free, excellent source of vitamins A and C; good source of potassium and fiber.
