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.
-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??!
