      Berni,

      This is an uchuva or cape goosberry. The scientific
      name is

      Physallis peruviana

      and it is a very popular fruit in the markets in
      Panama and, I think, Colombia.

      The plant is native to Brazil.

      Here are a couple links to it for those who
      would like to know more about it:

      http://www.crfg.org/pubs/ff/cape-gooseberry.html

      http://www.edible.co.nz/varieties/capegooseberry.htm

      and a Wikipedia page, for what it's worth:

      HTH

      Cheers!

      Paul M.
