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

What are the pros? Taste

What are the cons? Not too many fruits on a huge

Review:

I have 4 plants and the fruits started ripening (mid July) but they are tiny, not more than 1/3 inch diameter. We had a very wet and cold late spring and early summer, so maybe the plants didn't have a good start.

What are the pros? Absolutely delicious.

What are the cons? Slow to start & slow growing

Review:

I was expecting something like its relative the tomatillo, but this is much sweeter. Instead of using it for salsa verde, I ended up mixing it with my schwartzenbeeren and raspberries for a really wonderful pie/bar filling. I use very little sweetener, even though this is for dessert. That's assuming the berry even makes it into my house -- many don't! My only reservations are the time it took the plant to germinate, the size of the little plants (which makes it difficult to separate when the second leaves appear) and the slow growth of the plant. But now, in mid-summer, I have plants about 3' in diameter, loaded with little yellow lanterns that are best eaten when they fall to the ground. The plants are attractive, low and spreading, and I may mix them in with my decoratives next year.

What are the pros? They taste soooo good!

What are the cons? Pest control, but worth it

Review:

I love these ground cherries so much, I will grow them every year for the rest of my life. Tart and sweet, if grown properly harvest is massive. Not for beginning gardeners, but if you fall in love with these like me, order lady bugs when planting. Don't place the lady bugs until you start to see pest and their eggs. The lady bugs will eat the eggs that munch on your ground cherries.

What are the pros? Lots of fruit

What are the cons? Critter magnet, not that tasty

Review:

Grew two plants in my fenced in garden last year. The plants grew huge - I had to prune them to keep them in bounds. There were tons of fruit but the critters got most of them before I did (my guess is squirrels and chipmunks). The fruits I did get to were disappointing- I’ve had cherry tomatoes sweeter than these. I pulled both plants out midway through the growing season since they were taking up more space than they were worth to me.

What are the pros? Soon many fruits.

What are the cons? Non.

Review:

Drought year. Only one plant survived but it made up for the rest. Easily 50 fruit on the one plant. I will grow these again but give them a better start.
