Inca Berry

This small yellow berry is presented to us by nature in a fragile, translucent wrapping - such beautiful presentation.  Inside, you'll find a sweet, yet tangy golden little berry that has a flavor all to its own - sweet, with a subtle tart finish. 

 

The Inca berry is known by many other names -- the uchuva, the Aztec berry, golden berry, cape gooseberry and besos de amor (kisses of love).
