65 days. Polish heirloom variety has unusually fine flavor—very sweet with a nice hint of tartness. 1/2”-3/4” fruits are enclosed in a papery husk, drop to the ground when fully ripe. High pectin content makes this one choice for pies and preserves.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

Germinated nicely with tomatoes and peppers indoors. Quickly outperformed the tomatoes. Planted outdoors with plenty of manure and egg shells on nightly irrigation. Gorgeous, huge plants loaded with cherries. Harvested the first round today and wow are they incredible! Delicious, almost tropical sweet flavor unlike anything I can really compare it to. Washington is having a great growing year and these little guys have earned a place in my garden every year.

Review:

Started indoors 4 weeks prior to planting outside in my dryland garden with 50% sun in May. Slow production at first but putting on about a cup per plant per week with no irrigation. Taste is outstanding! I never imagined something with such flavor was real. Same struggles as other reviewers had with young plants randomly withering, but now I think it may have been due to over watering. In my garden where sunchokes wilt in the full sun these never show heat stress.

What are the pros? good germination

What are the cons? Did not establish

Review:

Seeds all germinated well with the seed starting system, but didn't hang on when moved into peat pots. Likely user error. Will try feeding more heavily next year and starting with heat and lights. Not easy to grow.

What are the pros? Great germination, low maint.

What are the cons? none

Review:

In years past I've had bad luck with growing these from seed. What I did this year was give the seeds some heat. I grew them in the same flat as my tomatoes, peppers and eggplant, which I always use a heat mat for during germination. They came right up, no problem. They are going strong now, in a bed that was constructed just before planting out, of compost on top of cardboard, on top of grass. They are getting rather large now, nearly mid June in zone 4. There are a handful of green husks on each plant, as well as more flowers. I have not been very diligent with watering, and we have had a few dry spells already. But they're still doing fine! Last year I grew them in straight soil, and they did not get very big. The year before I grew them in soil amended with manure, and they were huge. Conclusion: ground cherries are heavy feeders that like heat when germinating.

What are the pros? They are super sweet!

What are the cons? hard to transplant

Review:

Excellent flavor. They can be a challenge to germinate, and you should start them early just in case you get no germination and need to start over. I would suggest germinating them in a peat pot inside the house, or greenhouse, and then planting the entire pot in the ground when time. The roots are VERY sensitive and do not like to be bothered. I have had great success growing aunt mollys and ground cherries. I grown them and treat them with nutrients just like I grown my tomatoes. They are SUPER sweet once they fall off the branch and hit the ground. They do like lots of water once the heat is in full swing. I would mulch the plant to retain a moist ground once they are transplanted outside.
