These organic and preservative free dried Incaberries from Ecuador have a unique flavour; they are deliciously sweet with a fantastic sour hit in your mouth! You can enjoy Incaberries as a nutritious snack on the go; however they are also really versatile to use in a variety of dishes.
Incaberries not only taste fantastic but play an important role in the highland communities of Ecuador. David Bormeo, who is the Incaberry farmer, has been operating the farm for five years, and now employs over 400 people from the local area. Most of the exported products from Ecuador are grown in the coastal areas; however Incaberries are grown in the mineral rich soils of the highlands, 2500m above sea level. This provides the local communities in this area an opportunity to farm and make use of their land, with now over 100 local Incaberry growers meeting the increased global demands for this super-fruit!
