What in the world is a Golden Berry? Golden Berries are round, gold colored fruits that taste mostly tangy and lightly sweet, but not too tart to eat whole as a snack. They’re perfect to add to fruit salads and smoothies. A cousin to the tomatillo, Golden Berries grow inside of a loose husk and when you peel back the wrapper leaves the beautiful berry inside is revealed. The berries are naturally sticky on the outside, and the flesh firm and slightly juicy – close to the texture of a big blueberry.
The term Super Food has been associated recently with Golden Berries. Why? A low-glycemic fruit, Golden Berries are an excellent source of vitamin A and D and fiber, plus they contain other antioxidants and protein.
