Although dried goldenberry looks and tastes like berry fruits, it is more related to tomatoes that to raspberries, for example. Fresh goldenberry resembles tiny yellow cocktail tomatoes and it belongs to the same plant family. Once dried, it tastes more like berry fruits.
The French name for goldenberry is ”amour en cage”, meaning ”love in the cage” and refers to the fruit appearance (yellow fruits are “closed” in the paper-like shell).
