What are the pros? Easy to grow.
What are the cons? Nothing yet.
I've never tried ground cherries before, so I went ahead and ordered two varieties. I planted 12 seeds of Mary's Niagara ground cherries and 12 popped up! It was amazing! I even transplanted half the pods to a 6 pack and they showed no signs of noticing. They are definitely hardy.
I started them somewhat late for our season, since we have mild winters, but once the heat rolled in they are taking off. I have the majority of them blooming now. I have them planted in a variety of locations to see how they take our hot summers and I'll report back once I collect our first harvest. Excited to see what my kids think of them.
