Mystery Fruit!


Do you know what star gooseberry are? At first, it was a mystery fruit to me.


I saw these gems at a local Asian food market and thought I'd try them. I'm always up for trying new things!


Apparently these fruits grow on a tree in India or Madagascar or the Malay Islands. 


There are many health benefits for this little fruit...
-There is a lot of Vitamin C in this tiny little fruit! It is said to contain 20 times as much Vitamin C as an orange. 
-Improves eyesight.
-Increases red blood cells
-Helps to regulate insulin levels. (Great for diabetics!)
-Controls hair loss
-Strengthens heart muscles, thus in turn helping to prevent heart disease


The particular ones I got are pretty tasty, I think because of the slight chili on them.


Have you ever had these fruits before? If so, what did you think??!
