Ground Cherry: Aunt Molly's (Heirloom) (Physalis grisea)
Aunt Molly’s Ground Cherry is a Polish heirloom that is also known as Strawberry Tomato, Cape Gooseberry, and Husk Cherry. It reaches the height of about 18” and bares 1/2-3/4” pineapple yellow fruit that are encased in husks that keep on coming from July until the first frost. This plant also drops its fruit to the ground as soon as they mature making it a very easy plant to work with. More amazing, the fruits will store for up to 3 months as long as they are kept in their husk.
