Description

Organic Golden (Inca) Berries have been cultivated for centuries.

Golden Berries otherwise known as Inca berries have a deep rooted history in South America. They are hailed for their nutritional benefits.  These tart, orange-brown berries are well known for their bioflavanoid content and their sweet and sour flavour makes them a tasty treat.  Organic Golden Inca Berries are higher in antioxidants than apples, pomegranates, broccoli and goji berries.

The botanical name is Physalis peruviana L. and you may have eaten them fresh as a garnish on desserts – a bright orange berry.  If you haven’t tried these before then they are definitely worth a try, they are a delicious treat and make a refreshing change from more popular dried fruits.

We also stock a wide range of other interesting, nutritious, juicy berries.
