Now For A Green One_DSC9940

I thought I'd post a green cape gooseberry, for those who haven't seen them before. As the fruit ripens the berry changes from green to orange and the outside covering dries out and becomes papery.
Thank you all for your wonderful responses to yesterday's "trapped berry".
Wow!!! Looks so great!!!!

It's amazing to see the difference. I really like how delicate it looks when it dries out.

@deborah63 the "skeleton" effect only happens if they've been on the ground for a while. The soft papery cover decomposes much faster than the veins.
