Delicate yellow, bell-shaped flowers with dark purple spots in the flower's throat. The fruit is round and yellow/orange, enclosed in a papery husk or lantern. The lantern dries when the fruit is ripe. The fruit's skin is waxy, and the pulp is juicy with many tiny seeds.

 

Cape Gooseberries are small shrubby plants with grey-green velvety heart-shaped leaves. This herbaceous perennial will grow for several years, other than the very frosty areas where it can be grown annually, producing the fruit from summer to autumn. It has many uses, from eating fresh to decorating cheesecakes, pavlovas and gateaux. Use in pies or make jam or jelly. Compliments seafood, when made into a sauce, as it has a beautiful crisp flavour.

 

Easy to grow in many well-drained soil types, a good trim in spring after frosts have gone and pinching new growth tips will see it grow into a beautiful bushy plant.

 

Grows to approx 1m
