The Alma tree that produces the Gooseberry fruit is a sacred tree in India. The fruit is very nourishing, but has a sour taste. Because it is a remedy for so many diseases, it is widely used in Ayurvedic treatments. Gooseberry is high in vitamin C and contains many minerals and vitamins like calcium, phosphorus, iron, carotene, and vitamin B complex. It is also a powerful antioxidant agent. Our gooseberries are sun-dried without preservatives.
