Exotic and delicious fruit

It is grown in Antioquia, although in smaller proportions compared to other Colombian departments such as Cundinamarca and Boyacá. The planting of cape gooseberry in the country began in the mid-1980s for export purposes. Today, there are about 30 international traders that buy directly from farmers.

Colombia is one of the world's largest producers and exporters of cape gooseberry. In 2021, uchuva exports in Colombia will increase by 16% in value, from US$32,678,630 in 2020 to US$37,820,445. This places Colombia among the most important exporters of uchuva worldwide.
