Ground Cherry

Small orange berry with a husk.
A conversation piece at markets, well liked by children. This old-fashioned tomato family member bears 1/2- 3/4" sweet golden berries inside papery husks, resembling small, straw-colored Japanese lanterns. The flavor is quite sweet and a bit wild. Plants are profusely branching, prolific, and drop ripe fruits. Fruits can be eaten raw, dried like raisins, frozen, canned, or made into preserves, cooked pies, and desserts.

CULTURE: Sow 4-6 seeds/in. 6-7 weeks before transplanting out and grow without support.
NOTE: Seeds are slow to germinate compared to tomatillos and tomatoes, requiring about 2 weeks to germinate. Keep soil moist until emergence. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost, 18-24" apart.
HARVEST: When fruits are golden and tan husks open. More cold tolerant than tomatoes; bears until heavy frost.
