Aunt Molly's Ground Cherry

50 Seeds

$ 3.49

(Physalis pruinosa) Polish heirloom produces abundant yields of 1/2" to 3/4" wide ground cherries encased in thin, papery husks.  Sprawling plants grow 2' tall by several feet wide, but can be effectively contained by growing in tomato cages.  Golden yellow fruit have a delicious, sweet flavor with just a hint of tartness that makes them perfect for pies and preserves.  75-90 days from harvest.  50 seeds per packet.

CULTURE: For earliest harvest, start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Sow seeds 1/4" deep in well-moistened, sterile starting mix.  After danger of frost has passed, set plants outdoors, 36" apart in rows 60" apart. Plants have similar growth habit to tomatoes and likewise benefit from caging. Harvest fruit when husks begin to turn brown. Ground cherries have a tendency to drop at maturity, but are rarely damaged. Just be sure to harvest regularly.
