Huge yields of tart berries, this Ground Cherry (P. pruinosa) was often grown by the Pilgrims. Excellent for use in pies, jams, and preserves and is also delicious fresh off the vine. The fruit matures inside a paper-like husk (similar to tomatillos) and is grown just like tomatoes. (70 days)
Each packet contains approximately 50 seeds.
Start ground cherry seed indoors 4 to 8 weeks prior to last frost. Slightly cover seeds with soil to allow light which sometimes assists germination. Do NOT allow the soil to dry out — keep moist.
