Native to high-altitude, tropical Peru, where the fruits grow wild, physalis, golden berries or Inca berries are locally eaten and frequently sold in markets. Only recently has the plant become an important crop; it has been widely introduced into cultivation in other tropical, subtropical and even temperate areas.
The fruit is a smooth berry, resembling a miniature, spherical, yellow tomato.
This unique fruit has specialized antioxidants including polyphenols and carotenoids, qualifying it as a super food useful for their anti-inflammatory and other healing qualities.
