|These are poha berries in Hawaiian, but also known as cape gooseberries, or ground cherries. I only had a few of them so mixed them with some organic yogurt, local raw honey, and granola for a mini breakfast snack. |
They are pleasantly tart and not overly sweet.
|Poha berries gathered from the bush, or sprawling poha berry plant. They are related to tomatillos and conveniently have these wonderful wrappers which protect them from bugs, like the ever present fruit fly!|
|A poha berry sliced in half to show the seeds. You can grow more poha berries from seed.|
FYI, this blog is part of Maui Shop Girl's photo challenge for breakfast photos - there may be some other cool local breakfasts there.
