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? prolific growth

What are the cons? long time before maturity

Review:

I was so surprised how well these plants have taken off! I had never heard of ground cherries in Idaho (or anywhere else for that matter!). I did some research and discovered that ground cherries are one of the first things to go in french markets. I knew I had to try to grow them! I haven't tried the berries yet, but the growth alone makes these plants worth the purchase!

What are the pros? VERY large plants!

What are the cons? None

Review:

My goodness! I had no idea how large these plants get! Mine are at least 4 feet wide and 3 feet tall! They started flowering shortly after transplanting to 5 gallon grow pots and producing little lanterns. Never grew them before but I’m on a mission to grow as much of my own food as possible. I was intrigued that I could grow berries on an annual plant so I tried them, WOW! I will be growing these every year from now on. Do not taste Berries before they are ripe, yep I did. Wait until they fall off bush and pop one in your mouth, yum!

What are the pros? Grandson loves them (sweet)

What are the cons? Small

Review:

I started these from seeds and put one plant in a pot, they turn yellow when ready and easy to pull off or they fall off them selves. My grandson loves opening them and finding the fruit inside, then he gobbles it up.

Review:

Pineapple-strawberry-tomato. Thats what these things taste like. Sweet with pineapple and a hint of strawberry-tomato-ey? Thats the only way I can describe. Nice sweet flavor with a tanginess to it. I definitely recommend it.

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.
