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? they are awesome

What are the cons? hard to pick they grow low

Review:

they are easy to grow. I noticed a comment on here about beginner gardeners having trouble. Well I had no trouble with insects or anything else. I got the plants as starters and put them in and they grew really well. I don't spray and did not have to. I left them fall and harvested them. They are a pain to pick and harvest. You have to search the ground and root for them and make sure you don't step on them or the plants themselves. Picking them was the only con I have with them. They are awesome tasting to just eat like that. Better than cherry tomatoes. I 1st found them in a grocery store for a high price. Bought some and loved them. So when I seen them in here and realized I could grow my own. I tried them and they were just like the grocery store ones that I paid $4 for a pint that I had to go through myself and replace bad ones. So I give them 5 *'s Excellent investment

What are the pros? taste great

What are the cons? none

Review:

I have tried ground cherries from the grocery store on three separate occasions for a premium price and they were all terrible, however after reading the reviews of Aunt Molly's I thought I would give them a try. Following suggestions, I harvest them only after they fall, and then leave them on the counter for several days. Wow, they are delicious! They are sweet and tart a the same time, with a neat texture. Some are very small but still delicious. This will now be a regular in my garden.

What are the pros? Lots of fruits, stores well

What are the cons? hard to germinate

Review:

We accidentally put one of the seedlings with some tomatillos at the end of the row, despite unexpectedly poor soil quality (as we had just moved to our current location from California) and occasionally not getting water this plant and it's tomatillo kin grew large and burst into bloom, leaving many tiny fruits to harvest. They're sweet but need some time to ripen on the self as they will often fall from the plant before they are ripe. It's been a joy in what was otherwise a pretty crappy year for our gardening.

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.
