Sun Belle Golden Berries
Golden Berries are delicious and healthful fruits which have taken a long circuitous journey to reach North American tables and consumers. Originating in the Andes Mountains of South America, golden berries were planted in South Africa — and known as cape gooseberries, New Zealand, France – where they are fetchingly named “amour en cage” (love in a cage), and throughout the world, where they have gone by uchuva, Peruvian ground cherry and physalis, their scientific name.
The sweet and mild tart flavor of Golden Berries works well in jams and preserves, a reason they became so popular in the 19th century. Today, fresh Golden Berries are available year-round in North America.
- Sun Belle Golden Berries are grown, packed, and shipped through an exclusive partnership with a Colombian grower whose progressive agricultural practices comply fully with US, Canadian, and European laws and regulations.
- Sun Belle’s Golden Berries are ready to eat when purchased. Sun Belle ships Golden Berries with their papery husks removed to facilitate easy use. That means the berries are shiny and a bit sticky to the touch. This protective sap, which is fine to eat, can be rinsed off right before eating or use. For longer shelf life, Golden Berries should be refrigerated.
- Golden Berries are rich in healthful antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties, and may lessen the effects of harmful cholesterol. They are high in vitamins A and C, and are a good source of thiamin, iron, niacin and pectin. Golden Berries have emerged as a new, exotic and versatile Superfood!
