New Hanover Ground Cherry

0 Reviews | Write a Review
ROUGHWOOD/EFN EXCLUSIVE. Ground cherries are close relatives of tomatillos, considered a type of "husk tomato." The flavor is often more tangy than sweet, and tastes more like a vegetable than a fruit, but not the New Hanover: it's sweet, fruity, and addictive. It can be hard to save seeds from these because you'll want to eat every fruit! Preserved by the late Katie Hoffman Slonaker (1903-1983) in New Hanover, Pennsylvania, until becoming a part of the Roughwood Seed Collection, this variety is likely to become popular once again. We think it tastes better than the common cultivar known as 'Aunt Molly's'. At a tasting held by the American Institute of Wine and Food, it beat all other ground cherries tested! Grown ecologically in New Jersey by the Experimental Farm Network.
