Aunt Mollys Organic Ground Cherries


Delicious tropical taste in an attractive paper wrapper. Ground cherries are very sweet treat that taste a bit like pineapples that can be used in preserves, pies or over ice-cream, but here at Veseys we love to eat them fresh off the plant. The fruit from these prolific plants will store in a cool dry place for 3-4 weeks after harvest. Matures in 75-80 days after transplanting. Approx. 25 seeds/pkg.

The plants and fruits resemble tomatillos, with each fruit growing inside a papery husk called a calyx. But fruits mature to a golden orange colour and drop to the ground when ripe. The sweet little fruits will store for up to three months if kept in their husks, but you’ll want to use them faster than that in jams, fruit salads, and sauces.

Start seed indoors 8 weeks prior to transplanting. Matures in 60-65 days after transplanting. Approx. 25 seeds/pkg.
