Remarkably easy to grow - just like tomatoes. You may well have seen this South American delicacy garnishing expensive dishes in posh restaurants, or in small, very pricey packets in supermarkets. If so you would be forgiven for thinking this glamorous fruit is far too high maintenance to grow on UK soil. Origin: South America. Latin name: Physalis peruviana.

Delicious and ornamental. Individual berries wrapped in a Chinese lantern. The Incan delicacy that thrives on neglect, giving fresh berries right up until Christmas. Tastes like: Gooseberries, kiwi, pineapple, orange.

Recognisable in patisseries or indeed many cocktails, these shiny golden berries, each wrapped in its own paper Chinese lantern, are one of the trendiest garnishes around. Also known as the Cape Gooseberry (although it originates from highland Peru), the golden berry, or simply by its genus name ‘Physalis’, these sticky amber balls have a rich flavour of ripe gooseberries with a hint of tropical fruit, followed by a pleasant bitter sweet aftertaste. Sow: February-April. Harvest: August-October.

 

 

Growing Information

Full growing instructions given on packet. In fact, the Inca Berry is remarkably easy to grow; just like tomatoes, excpet less demanding! Grown just like a tomato, sow the seeds 13mm (½") deep in a shallow tray of compost in a propagator or on a sunny windowsill at 15-18°C (60-65°F). Germination 20-40 days. Transplant seedlings into individual 7.5cm (3") pots and keep in a sunny warm spot indoors. Plant outdoors in late May or after all risk of frost has passed spacing each plant 50cm (20") apart. Just like tomatoes the Inca Berry plant loves to bask in a sunny spot with well drained soil. 1 plant per grow bag or a collection of 30cm (12") pots on the patio are equally as effective. The Inca Berry will thrive outdoors and there is absolutely no need to prune or train. Watering and feeding now and again is all that is needed to maintain a healthy Inca Berry plant. Free from the risk of pests or disease, keep on top of watering and the Inca Berry is happy to get on with the job - producing berries by the punnet load. Sowing: February-April. Cropping: 20-24 weeks.
