Red aromatic berries with seeds on the outside skin. A variety of size, colour and shapes available. Eat fresh in hand, fruit salads, platters, and decoration for many desserts and cakes.

Store covered under refrigeration. Use as soon as possible due to rapid deterioration.
Wash and dry well on absorbent paper if necessary. Remove the green calyx with a sharp knife.
