Cape Gooseberries in the Triangle?

durhamois Sep 5, 2011 09:58 PM

I used to find cape gooseberries everywhere each fall, but for the past few years I haven't seen them in the stores. I was excited to find some in Harris Teeter yesterday, but when I got them home and started peeling back the husks, I saw that almost the whole container had gone moldy and spoiled. Has anyone seen them around? They are one of my favorite fruits, and I hate not being able to find them.

    I purchased some at Harris teeter and they were great. Perhaps you were particularly unlucky. HT will refund your money.

      There is a farmer at the DFM who sometimes has them: Abanitu. Though I try to buy all he has during their short season ;)
