PINEAPPLE GROUND CHERRY (TOMATILLO) (75 days, Heirloom)

Germ 7-14 days / Physalis pruinosa
It really tastes like a pineapple! The large spreading plants are 3 feet across and covered with hundreds of fruit that are quite different from other tomatillos. They are only about 3/4 inch in diameter and soft so they are great for eating fresh. They fall from the plant when ripe. Great for preserves and pies. 40 seeds

PLANTING:

PINEAPPLE TOMATILLO PLANTING:

Indoors- 6-8 weeks before last frost and 1/8” deep. Keep soil moist and 75 degrees. Transplant out 18-24” apart after last frost.

Harvest- Fruits are golden in color and will fall to the ground when they are ripe.

Tips- Place some type of cloth under the plants for easier harvest.

Pineapple ground cherries

Have planted ground cherries for years. Enjoyed eating them raw and in pies. It's now a regular item in my garden. Easy to grow and.easy to harvest.

Low to no germination

Fairly poor product. Small packet size for the cost and low to no germination of the five different varieties that I purchased. Rather dissatisfied.

Hi Peter, I'm sorry that what your ordered has little to no germination. I can understand why you'd be dissatisfied. We do guarantee the germination of our seeds. I can offer replacement packets, or issue a credit or refund. As for the smaller quantity of seeds in our packets - we try to cater to the backyard gardener as much as we can, so that more varieties can be grown, and not out of budget. Pinetree Garden Seeds

pineapple ground cherry

Tried starting early in greenhouse and later directly into the garden, but did not get a single plant from either attempt. Don't know if is something I did or did not do or if I got a bad packet of seeds. Next year!

It is hard to do a review on seeds this early in the season as I have not sown all of them yet, but I will do what I can. I grow a lot of fruit and veg as I take them to farmers and growers markets. The ordering was easy and all seeds were shipped and arrived in a timely fashion, package quality was very good. I have sown the first crop of the petite Rouge Lettuce, which were out of the ground in 5 days, I will sow every 2 weeks from now till late summer. The pineapple ground cherry (yellow tomatillo,) isis candy and matts wild cherry tomato I sowed a week ago, some have amerced, I have them on heat blankets. the Turkish orange eggplant I have just sown so nothing there yet. The arugula came out of the ground like a rocket (excuse the pun). Not sown the Helenor Rutabaga yet. Hope this helps.
