In the photographer's words: "At the feria (farmers' market) in La Serena, a farmer was handing out free samples of a strange orange fruit I had never seen before. To eat it, you peel open something that looks like a paper lantern to find a small orange sphere. It tastes like a concentrated orange, or maybe a kumquat. I bought a bag and nearly ate them all in one sitting. In English, they are sometimes called Cape Gooseberries."
