Caperberries are the immature fruit of the Caper bush.
Typically the Caper bush’s unopened flower buds are harvested before they bloom, and sold as Capers.
If the buds are allowed to blossom, and produce fruit, Caperberries are the very young, immature fruit that is produced.
Caperberries are about the size of a very small grape. They have pale olive-coloured skin only about 1 mm thick, with faint white stripes. They are white inside, with tiny, crunchy seeds that are very flavourful. After pickling, they will have the same firmness as green olives.
They are cured in brine, then pickled in vinegar. Their flavour is milder than capers, but they do acquire a salty, tangy taste from the processing.
Serve our Scarpone’s Caperberries as you would olives, or use in cocktails.
Call our sales team to discuss the two sizes available (small and large) and for more information.
