Goosberry – Cape Goosberry – Organic Seeds

R29.00 incl VAT

The Cape gooseberry (Physalis edulis) is a quick-growing annual or perennial fruit plant that originates in South America. It has been grown extensively in many parts of South Africa for the little golden berries that are produced in abundance, on bushes that can reach a height of about 1m. It is grown commercially to produce jams and stewed gooseberries for desserts. It is not to be confused with the English gooseberry, a popular plant in the colder temperate zones. Cape gooseberries are easy to grow from seed and well worth cultivating if space permits.
