Review:

These were easy to start under grow lights, and grew really well, too well, taking the recent heat wave like a champ. However, they take up a LOT of real estate. I had some of these planted in front of my peppers in a raised bed and they took over. I just pulled a bunch out of that bed and am going to just stick with what I have in the ground. The ground cherries have a nice flavor, subtly sweet with an umami finish, but there isn't really much you can do with them other than snack while in the garden, I guess because they are called ground cherries I thought they would spend low but they were almost like okra in the shrub-mounding habit. Description said they hover only a few inches off the ground....not even close. At least 18" high and 24" wide early in the season. Great plant but I probably won't grow them again, as my limited bed space means I need to stick with things I can cook with.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
