Mycelium comes under different names. Because it originally comes from Peru, it is often called the Peruvian berry, but is also known as the Peruvian cherry or the Brazilian raisin. Just as interesting as the names of the phyllable and its origin are the properties of this plant. So let's check why it's worth eating it.

Each of us has certainly seen and admired the bellows more than once. It is easy to recognize because it has the characteristic yellow-orange fruit that is similar in size and shape to cherry tomatoes. The fruit is hidden in a characteristic casing resembling a Chinese lantern.
The motherland of the medley are the countries of South America and there this plant is treated with special reverence, as a remnant of the Inca culture. The moderate climate of Central Europe turned out to be extremely favorable for this plant, hence its widespread occurrence in Poland.
Due to the fact that the orchids look very decorative, this shrub can often be found in our gardens, from where it goes to dry bouquets or ikebana. While the aesthetic qualities of this plant leave no doubt, its health benefits are almost unknown. Surely many people are now ignorant. Who could have guessed, after all, that this plant that we admire in the gardens is edible! But the nice appearance of the fruit is not all that can be said about this plant. Due to its beneficial effect on our health and taste, it definitely deserves more attention.

Mushroom can be eaten raw or dried. Before eating the fruit, it must be removed from the casing. The raw apple leaflet is served whole or cut in half. There are numerous small seeds in the flesh.
