Ripe is best
Golden berries are also known as Inca berries, Cape gooseberries, physalis, or Peruvian ground cherries. Although they flourish in a warm climate and grow well in a greenhouse, these papery-husked tart berries have found their way north and can adapt well outdoors.
Golden berries are part of the nightshade family and contain solanine when unripe. Solanine is a toxic metabolite that can cause digestive upset. Be sure to eat golden berries only when they are fully ripe (or dried) and eat in moderation.
