Ground Cherries

Ground Cherries
All the Physalis types yield fruits loosely enclosed in papery husks (including the Tomatillo, which we list separately), and nearly all come from the New World. All are started just like tomatoes and are super easy to grow; they do not need to be staked! Few people realize that the Physalis varieties store extremely well, when kept in their protective husks, lasting for quite some time under refrigeration. They are used fresh or cooked, and are very juicy and sweet.
