Cape Gooseberry

Cape Gooseberry

We found this growing in our Garden...complete with ripening fruit...Apparently comes from Brazil, and I even found a Jam Recipe too...

The downside is it belongs to the Deadly Nightshade family, and all parts save the Fruit are Poisonous...

Hi B....yes it is interesting, the little Lantern shape outer, turns brown and opens to reveal an orangey round fruit...
