Dehydrated Incan berries

Physalis Peruviana, or inca berry as it is more commonly called, originates from the Andes. The plant produces red-orange berries enclosed in sepals of the same colour that are generally toxic.

However, some mature cape gooseberries produce edible, exquisite and highly decorative fruits. The incan berries have a pleasant sour taste.

They are often referred to as “coqueret del Perú” in Peruvian, “amour en cage” (love in a cage) or “lanternes japonaises” (Japanese lanterns) in French.
