We discovered a new fruit today at Harvest Market: Cape Gooseberries.  These are small yellow berries about the size of a cherry, with a sweet-tart tropical flavor and a floral aroma.  They taste kind of like a mango or apricot with notes of orange and persimmon.  Apparently they have health benefits.  I had no idea; I bought some because they smelled good.  This page has some recipe links.

They grow self-seeded here. I've had a few good harvests -- enough to dry fruit and make jam, but this last year they didn't ripen to full sweetness.

What I miss are a whole lot of berries we got last we were in Alberta. I love Saskatoons so much I very nearly broke quarantine rules to try and get some seeds home.

I'm on a wishlist notification from the one mob likely to get it, but they are in Queensland, and getting things into WA can be tricky. And expensive.

You're late to the party! :o)

I know them as phsyalis and they are wonderful!

Weird. They always taste reminiscent of cherry tomatoes to me. Hence, I dislike them. XD
