Different taste ranges, from sour to adorably sweet, Cape gooseberries are a real treat in gardens. Some types are bright, orange-coloured fruits that are near related to the tomatillo. Like tomatillos, they are wrapped in a flimsy husk called a calyx that must be removed before eating. Minor than cherry tomatoes, some have a tropical taste reminiscent of pineapples and mangoes. Many people enjoy them as a snack or in salads, sauces and jams. They belong to the nightshade family and grow in warm places around the world.
