The Seed Savers Exchange - ‘Drotts Yellow’ boasts a tasty, sweet, fruity flavor that sets it apart from other ground cherries. Its husks turn first yellow and then brown at peak maturity, when the half-inch fruits drop to the ground from large, sprawling, and highly productive plants. Exchange lister Thomas Jerde acquired this variety in 1986 when he bought a home in Minneapolis from the Albert Drotts family and discovered the ground cherry growing in the garden. 55 days from transplant to ripe fruit. Organic.
Instructions - Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Plant out when the danger of frost has passed. Excellent results when grown on landscape cloth, which suppresses weeds and makes collecting the fruits easier.
Start indoors 6 weeks before the last frost
Germinate 14 days
Plant 12-18" apart
Firefly Farm & Mercantile may substitute suppliers based on availability
