Cape Gooseberry Fruit

At one of the gatherings, I tried some kind of homemade chocolate that was served with coffee… it was a chocolate square filled with some sort of fresh berries sauce topped with cape gooseberry fruit!

I was talking to my friend about it… I told her how good it was (keep in mind that I am not the kind of person who like fruity filled chocolates).

The fruit is called (in Arabic): Al Harankash or Essit El Mistakhabiya (the second name means the shy hiding lady) hahahah!

Anyways! I want some right now!!! Do any of you know if its the season for it now!? Or a BIG plus for whoever can tell me where to find that chocolate I described? I know it was homemade and not from chocolate store!
