(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? Prolific, tasty, easy to grow

What are the cons? Slow at first

Review:

We loved our ground cherries, as did our dogs who started eating them right off the ground. They are really slow to mature. My tomatoes started from seed at the same time, were 8" taller when I transplanted them. The ground cherries did not take off until I had then in the ground, in containers (even large ones), they did not take off, but once I put them in raised beds and it got warm, they took off. They really love hot weather! The fruit is delicious, and fun to eat, our dogs love them.

What are the pros? Prolific plants; fun to eat

What are the cons? Season ended way too soon

Review:

I bought these seeds because my grandson would be one year old around harvest time and i wanted a fun plant for him when he came to see gramma. I never heard of ground cherries prior, and they surpassed my hopes and expectations: hundreds of little japanese lantern-like fruits hanging all over. They turn from green to tan, and the ripe ones will fall to the ground with a good shake to the main stem. They require no maintenance or pollination and seem to be pest free. The deer and rabbits weren't interested. My grandson couldn't get enough of them. He just loved them

What are the pros? deer and rabbit don't like em

Review:

i grew these out of curiosity and for my grandson, since they're edible fresh. I've got three plants that are cranking out hundreds of these little lanterns with a delicious, clean ripe berry inside. i got the whole neighborhood talking about them. My grandson holds out his little basket while i fill it for him and he can't wait to eat them all.

Review:

I ordered these, Aunt Molly GC, and New Hanover GC this winter and started indoors. These were started Feb 1 took 3-4 weeks to germinate (with spotty results) and grew very slowly. They are now about 5 inches tall and 6 inches wide and looking good. The Aunt Molly GC had an incredible and relatively quick germination rate, whereas the New Hanover had long and poor germination. I will update this review later this season. If anyone has information about how large this cultivar gets and whether or not a tomato type cage will work well, please post in a review! Thank you!
