Aunt Molly's Ground Cherry
Native to the Americas, this ground cherry is a family heirloom variety that traveled here from Poland. Tiny, ½ inch fruit turn golden-orange when ripe and are encased in a papery tan-colored husk. They are delightfully fruity and sweet, and wonderful for pies, preserves, or salads. Plants will sprawl but are quite easy to grow. 70 days.
