The Wonder of the Uvilla

One of the great things we have discoved down here is the uvilla, which is a "Golden Berry" or a "Cape Gooseberry" in English. They are my new favorite fruit. It's a bright orange sweet tart fruit about the size of a marble that emerges from the paper lantern-like pod you see in this image. Sadly, they aren't available fresh in the US except at the occasional farmer's market...but you can find dried Golden Berries in our chocolate - one of our most popular products is Dark Chocolate Covered Goldenberries (shameless plug for our products).
