Goldenberries are small, juicy, sweet-tart fruits with delightfully tangy tropical notes often described as a mix between mango and pineapple. This attractive fruit is related to tomatoes and tomatillos—it resembles tomatillos in that it has tiny edible seeds and a papery husk that’s peeled before consuming.

These flavorful bite-sized fruits are native to South America and have a multitude of names such as Cape Gooseberries, Husk Tomatoes, Ground Cherries, Inca Berries, Aztec Berries, Peruvian Cherries and Poha.

Enjoy Goldenberries just like blueberries or strawberries. Pop them into your mouth as a quick snack or add them to your morning breakfast routine. They taste delicious on pancakes, waffles, granola or yogurt. They also make an elegant garnish on cheese plates, chocolate ganache-coated desserts, ice cream or holiday centerpiece dishes like Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham.

Alternatively, Goldenberries strike a nice balance between sweet and tart when simmered into a sauce, jam, or chutney or when paired with rich flavors like pork belly or creamy ricotta cheese.

Melissa’s Goldenberries are hand selected for excellent quality. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 to 7 days.
