The Incan Golden Berry is also known as the Pichuberry (Aguaymento) and is native to the highlands of Peru, Chile, Columbia and other countries along the Andes Mountians. To many it is known as the lost Incan Crop that has been growing in the Andes for thousands of years. It’s small in size (about the size of a large marble) and grows within a protective paper-like husk that looks strikingly similar to a Chinese lantern. Many cultures believe that in order to harvest the fruit at its best you must wait until the husk has completely dried. Those cultures would often hold off their people from picking the fruit until this point. Once the husk was dry, the Golden Berry would be at the peak of being ripe which would create a very rich, sweet and juicy berry.
Sunfood’s raw, organic and non-GMO Golden Berries are sweet, tangy, and have been gently dried at low temperatures so that they have a consistency similar to raisins.
