(P. pruinosa) 70 days. Huge yields of tart-sweet berries. This is the common type used by the Pilgrims; excellent for pies, jams, and preserves of all kinds; also delicious fresh. The fruit grow inside a paper-like husk (the same as Tomatillos). Grow it the same as you would tomatoes.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

I agree with the other reviewer, don't bother starting indoors, just direct sow these, and be patient, germination takes awhile but then they take off and grow fast

Review:

I grew 4 little plants in a large pot outside. By fall the pot was full of berry producing plants. The next Spring I transplanted those to my garden by the pond. Despite being uprooted and put in 'tough' soil they grew very well. They multiplied and produced tons of berries all the way through fall. The only thing I did was water with Kelp water at transplant and water in very dry spells. A friend loved the berries so much I dug some up for her to plant at her house.

What are the pros? Delicious. Fun.

What are the cons? Super slow to germinate.

Review:

These take forever to germinate but hang in there. Once they get growing, they grow super tall and full of the most amazing berries! They were the hit of all my friends and garden neighbors. They are so delicious. I never had enough to make into a pie or jelly though- they all were eat raw as soon as they were ripe. They fall to the ground when ripe- they will be tart otherwise. Such a fun fruit to grow!

What are the pros? Prolific, tasty.

What are the cons? Hard to start

Review:

I started these indoors and wound up with six plants that hardened off to four. In about three weeks time they started with the first few fruits. Then, almost overnight, they exploded! I harvested roughly two to three cups a week easy with six cups being the record one week. Makes a great crisp or pie and fantastic jam.

What are the pros? Beautiful Plant, yummy

What are the cons? none

Review:

Don't even bother to start them inside. I tried to start 6 and only ended up with one to put in the garden. When transplanting, I direct seeded the ground cherries all around the one transplant. Before I knew it, I couldn't tell the difference between the two, size-wise. Needs lots of water to get going.....doesn't everything? Love to have these in the garden. The plant itself is lovely and everyone always asked what it was.
