Physalis: gorgeous and surprising fruit

Last Monday I was at the Hague market. I was caught by the looks of Physalis, the fruit on the photo. The Turkish fruit seller explained to me that this fruit is commonly known as the Golden Berry among the Turkish population in the Netherlands. I tried one and bought a whole bunch. The taste is a mix of sweet and sour. First comes the sour and afterwards a hint of sweetness. I fell in love with this exotic fruit with it’s cover looking like a lantern. Every time I pick one up it’s like opening a present full of vitamin C.
