Cape Gooseberry is a nightshade plant native to Brazil that is actually closer to a tomato than a berry. Its delicious yellow-orange fruit, wrapped inside a peculiar paper - or lantern-like cape, can be considered a sweet version of the cherry tomato, with a sour note that reminds one of a cranberry. Its complex flavour was enough to capture the interest of an English pastry chef in 18th century England, who grew the plant after it was imported from the New World. Cape Gooseberry plants are very easy to grow in pots and require so little maintenance that they will easily re-seed in sunny, frost-free spots in your container garden!

Packet includes 125 seeds. Plants grow to 70cm tall and 45cm wide.
