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
