Growing golden Cape Gooseberries in Plettenberg Bay

Before we started our 7 year project to grow a real urban Food Forest we already had a well established Bush of Cape Gooseberries with a stem almost as big as an arm!

Golden berries are bright, orange-colored fruits that are closely related to the tomatillo. Like tomatillos, they are wrapped in a papery husk called a calyx that must be removed before eating.

The success we had with cape gooseberries is reason enough to try to grow tomatillos next!
