Organic Ground Cherry

Description

Polish heirloom wild harvest plant similar to Cape Gooseberry but a bit more compact. The sweet and prolific golden orange coloured fruit are enclosed by a transparent husk and fall to the ground when ripe. A high pectin content makes them good for jams and preserves. Grow in the same time frame as you would Cape Gooseberry or Tomatillo. 

Matures 75 days from transplant.
