Garden Berries

Chinese Lantern Gigantea

(Physalis franchetii) This lovely 2-foot perennial produces pretty seed pods, which are bright red-orange and look like glowing Chinese lanterns. Great as a fresh cut flower or dried for craft projects. So popular at farmers' markets, as every one just loves these. This variety is extra large and the berries inside the husk are edible when fully ripe; cook similar to a regular ground cherry. Fun to grow.
