Individually wrapped, pop-in-your-mouth, scrumpticious spheres of sweetness that taste like a complex combination of creamy strawberry with a distinct pineapple finish. I know this sounds like hype but I've watched people's faces when they taste a Ground Cherry for the first time - pure heaven!
A member of the solanaceae family (yes! tomatoes & peppers), plants are very easy to grow, requiring very little attention, once established. Throw them in a part of your garden or landscape and forget them until the end of summer.
As fruits mature, their husks form a papery 'envelope' around each of the fruits which eventually drop to the ground, signally they are fully ripe.
Tall (2.5 - 3 ft) and equally as round, plants are very, very productive and self-pollinating! Even better is they store incredibly well (as long as the paper husks remain intact) - becoming even more sweet with age!
I've included a couple of new pictures this year to show you what the fruit looks like on the plant. Remember though that fruits are fully mature once they have naturally fallen to the ground. Some people opt to place a tarp under the plants to make collecting fruits easier.
Sold in a 2.5" pot.
