Melissa’s Golden Berries (Cape Gooseberries)

IMG_20151213_164218

Melissa’s Golden Berries (Cape Gooseberries) are unique to say the least. They were next to the black and raspberries at Russes’s. They look awesome with the leafy shell and gold color berries. There was an oily residue on the berries. The stem was hard to pull off and these are basically very sweet and tart cherry tomatoes. Seeds and all. Really unique, but kind of freaked me out after a couple. Never really been afan of cherry tomatoes.

Dawwwww baby tamales. I was hoping the shell to flavorless bean ratio would be tweaked for more shell, but the thin shell makes them pretty much equal but smaller. And the small shape means more irregular beans. Nice and soft.
