AUNT MOLLY'S GROUND CHERRY (70 Days) (HEIRLOOM) Organic

4
Germ 7-14 days / Physalis pruinosa
Polish Heirloom 1837
Smooth, marble sized fruits are indigenous to the high altitudes of South America, eventually finding their way to Europe in the 18th century. Have a sweet,tangy,citrus flavor ending with a hint of vanilla- plus after an employee taste test, Julie claimed that it tasted like a pina colada. Abundant harvests of golden fruit are enclosed in papery husks turning green to yellow/brown, dropping to the ground when ripe, continuing to sweeten while waiting to be harvested. Sweet or savory uses: add these to salads, smoothies, perserves, pies, and even dry like raisins. When stored with the husk on they can last a month. Grows to 2 ‘ high x 4 ‘ wide. 40 seeds

Husk Tomatoes/Ground Cherries

I am still waiting for the fruit. Had a very hard winter in NC and even though I started them in the house, it has taken a while for them to really take off. I am addicted to them so I cannot wait. Hopefully not too much longer. My friends in CT will be eating theirs before I eat mine.

Good seeds

Good seeds… We only got about 5 plants to come up out of the whole packet of ground cherry. The power bumped inside of our green house which shut off our heating elements so all of our baby plants died. We’ll try them again next spring.
