(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? 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.

Review:

these grew great, our biggest success in 2017. tons of tasty fruits that are tart and sour (not in a bad way) then some are more orange and super sweet. since we have never had them before they were a nice addition to the usual for sure. would recommend some type trellis.

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 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
