What is it?

Golden Inca berries or “Incanberry” for short, is a native of the tropical region of South America. They also grow only in high altitudes.

Like most plants, they have been around for centuries. The plant of the incaberry grows to about a metre in height. The fruits it produces are small with a colour tone ranging from bronze yellow to golden. A paper-thin calyx covers the fruits which serve as its protection from insects and birds. But aside from that, the cover also prolongs its freshness even after harvest.

Incaberry or “aguaymanto” in the Peruvian language and cape gooseberries in Africa, is not really a berry but belongs to the same botanical family as currants. The fruits spread out to Asia and Africa before it made its way to Europe in the 16th century where the British began developing varieties of it. It was about a hundred years later when incaberries finally reached the American shores.

Today, there are approximately 2,000 gooseberry cultivars but only two main types—American gooseberry and European gooseberry. The latter is said to be bigger and tastier of all gooseberry kinds.
