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

What are the pros? flavor, fun husks and easycare

What are the cons? notta

Review:

I started mine like I do tomatoes then I stuck them out in the ground in a spot in my garden that gets good sun and good water. These were super fun with the lantern like husks and bushy structure! I ate most of my berries on my way back to the house they were so tasty! The deer and goats leave them alone because they are a bit fuzzy I think but I really don't know why-the buggers eat everything else-had no trouble with these from any pests, even the voles left them alone which was really great for me. Very nifty in the fairy garden too. I'm certain these would be fantastic in jams or jellies but mine just never make it that long in the house.

What are the pros? A ton of fruit

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted these for the first time in my Tower Garden. Holy smokes....they took off. I’ve not yet harvested the fruit but hopefully, from what I’ve read, they will be ready in 20-30 days.

What are the pros? Germination, easy care, taste

What are the cons? None

Review:

Well, this is my first experience with ground cherries. I think all my seeds must have germinated and I shared plants with everyone I knew, practically. So many ground cherries and flowers are on my plants. I tasted my first yesterday and it was so good. I'm glad I planted many plants because I can't wait to eat more. Lots more! So unique. One thing I'd wondered and couldn't find out was how long from when you first noticed a ground cherry on the plant to when you got to eat it. Well, from my charting one, it takes about 30 days give or take a few days. (In case anyone else wanted to know) Anyway, I'd recommend giving these a try. I'm getting ideas for how I'll use them. Maybe some ground cherry and mint kombucha! I love to experiment. Also, I love finding this new to me plant to share with others.

What are the pros? Absolutely love the taste

What are the cons? none

Review:

I started them from seed about the same time as my tomatoes, and they stayed really small until they were in the ground. As soon as it started getting warmer, they took off like crazy. I'll definitely be planting a lot more of these in the future. Please note that they do have a spreading bush type habit, so give them some extra room to grow.

Review:

i planted these from a packet 9 or 10 years ago. have never needed to plant them again. they volunteer, pop up everywhere. i just leave the plants where i would like to have them. no fertilization, no extra water; i just let them go as they please. i always have hundreds of fruits. if you would like to have them come up in a specific spot next year, save some fruit and bury it in the spring. great flavor. i have loved them since i picked them in my dad's vegetable garden as a child. the children in my neighborhood love them, too. i like them best when they have turned full yellow.
