Cape Gooseberry is a medium evergreen shrub, desired for its production of edible fruit.

It produces small, round, golden yellow fruit about the size of a cherry tomato. These are distinctively flavoured, with a sweet and mildly tart flavour and can be eaten straight from the shrub, or used in deserts and salads. Fruit is grown in ornate, lantern-like calyxes which have a protective function while the fruit is forming, then dry out and open as it ripens.

The shrub is reasonably drought tolerant and requires a sun to part shade position with a soil rich in organic matter.
