Aus meiner Serie "Kapstachelbeere - captured"

 

Wish my dear flickr friends a wonderful Thursday! Ich wünsche meinen flickr Freunden einen wunderschönen Donnerstag!

 

Its most notable feature is the single papery pod that covers each berry. Because of the fruit's decorative appearance, it is sometimes used in restaurants as an exotic garnish for desserts.

 

Native to Colombia, Chile and Peru where the fruits are casually eaten and occasionally sold in markets but the plant is still not an important crop, it has been widely introduced into cultivation in other tropical, subtropical and even temperate areas. The plant was grown by early settlers of the Cape of Good Hope before 1807. In South Africa it is commercially cultivated; canned fruits and jam are staple commodities, often exported. It is also cultivated and naturalized on a small scale in Gabon and other parts of Central Africa.

 

Look the discribtions on the other shots, please.
