Nergi berries have been grown in small quantities for hundreds of years, but only recently have they come into the spotlight as as a new and noteworthy superfood in North America.
The non-GMO, all-natural berries are produced in farms across Europe and are packed with antioxidants, vitamins and fiber. In terms of looks, the Nergi berry resembles a small-scale kiwi fruit or even a bite-sized tomato, but it has an edible ever-green skin like a grape and a juicy center. As far as taste, the Nergi berry is said to be sweet, yet tart.
For the first time, Nergi berries can now be found for a limited time (due to the short season in which they are available) in select grocers in Canada, including Loblaws, Zehrs, Fortinos and Sobeys.
