Delicious tropical taste in an attractive paper wrapper. Ground cherries are very sweet and taste a bit like pineapples. Can be used in preserves, pies or over ice-cream, but here at Veseys we love to eat them raw. 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. Seed Count:  Approx. 25 seeds/pkg.  Starter Plants: 6/pkg.

Starter Plant Info: 6 plants/pkg. Minimum Purchase Required:  When purchasing Starter Plants you must purchase a minimum of 12 plants, this can be a combination of any 2 pkgs of 6 plants (or 1 collection of 12 plants).  Shipping info:  All Starter Plant orders will be shipped in early-mid May via Canada Post Express Post.
