Nergi Berry and White Chocolate Mousse





NERGI® is a fruit berry that is naturally sweet. It is 2-3 cm big and it resembles a baby kiwi but it has a smooth skin so it can be eaten without peeling it.  

The berry has been cultivated in France, Portugal, Italy and the Netherlands since 2013. It is available between the months of September-November when the berry is at its ripest stage and ready for picking.

The berries are packed with vitamins C and E, they are also very rich in minerals and fibre making them a super fruit. At only 52kcal per 100g they are low in calories and perfect for lunch boxes, snacking and for creating some mouth watering recipes with. 


There are many ways you can eat this tasty berry.You can get some recipe ideas using the berries here. NERGI® is not only deliciously tasty but it’s easy to transport too as it comes in small berry trays which hold approx 12-15 mini berries.


My first taste of NERGI® berry fruit left me seriously wowed. I loved the sweet juicy berry with a slight tartness. The berries are really refreshing and exude a very sweet aroma. 

I used my berries to make a Nergi berry and white chocolate mousse. The sweetness of the white chocolate mousse and the slight sharpness from the berry made the perfect combination making my dessert simply delectable.
