Ground Cherry, 'Aunt Molly's'

*Ark of Taste Heirloom*
(aka husk cherry, cape gooseberry)(Physalis pruinosa) About the closest we can come to real tropical fruit flavor from our northwest garden. Related to the tomatillo, ground cherries are low growing plants that produce an abundance of fruit about the size of a large marble enclosed in papery husks. The flavor can best be described as a combination of banana and pineapple with a hint of muskiness from it nightshade lineage. When ripe, the yellow fruit drops with the husk attached and can easily be gathered from around the base of the plant. Great for snacking out of hand and also makes a nice dried fruit, jam, or chutney. The small fruits will keep in their husks from 2-3 weeks.
75 days. UO


Packet: 50 seeds
