Market Day

It's Saturday, it's market day!

If you're not familiar with these, they are physalis. Here's this from Wikipedia:

"Many Physalis species are called ground cherries.[5] One name for Physalis peruviana is Inca berry; another is Cape gooseberry, not to be confused with the true gooseberries, which are of the genus Ribes in the family Grossulariaceae. Other names used to refer to the fruit are poha berries, and simply golden berries.[6]"

Later edit: A suggestion made ( @stimuloog ) to crop this tighter - the result is here:

Thanks to all for their suggestions, comments and questions!
Very nicely captured detail and colour.

Interesting, how do you eat them? Or do you cook with them?

Love this

Nicely done. They turn up sometimes on my plate in restaurants, never knew if they were for decoration or eating.

@nicolecampbell Nicole, I expect you can do both. They are very sweet and quite sharp, a bit like a firm white grape or a tame gooseberry. They'd be good in fresh fruit salad, as a simple choice.

@laroque Tim - both!

I love to eat these. They are nice in deserts with ice too :-)
Nice lighting but I think when you would crop the pic a bit (especially from the bottom) the impact of this nice still life could be even greater :-)

Love dipping these in melted chocolate and leaving to harden..... mmm, mouth watering now....

This is a really nice result, I found these so hard to photograph. Looks good on white too.

They are so interesting, never seen them before. Checked out the other photo and I prefer the closer crop.
