Goldenberry (Physalis peruviana L.), also known as Pichuberry, is native to high-altitude tropical Chile and Peru, where the fruits grow wild. This smooth berry, resembling a miniature, spherical, yellow tomato, belongs to the nightshade family that includes tomato, eggplant and potato.
Goldenberries are rich in antioxidants, particularly carotenoids and polyphenolic compounds, and also contain unique withanolide compounds similar to those found in ginseng. They contain moderate levels of vitamin C, thiamin and niacin. Analyses of oil from the berries, primarily its seeds, indicate that linoleic acid and oleic are the main fatty acids, beta-sitosterol and campesterol are the main phytosterols, and they contain vitamin K and beta-carotene.*
