Product description

The Seed Savers Exchange - The very productive plants have sprawling growth and the tangy and sweet fruits are about ⅔" in diameter and encased in a papery husk. We found these to be slightly sweeter and smaller than Aunt Molly's. Allow the fruit to fall to the ground before harvesting. This ground cherry has been passed down through at least four generations of women; it was brought to Canada from Russia in 1925. 80 days from transplant. 

Characteristics: 

  • Organic
  • Fruits grow to 2/3" in diameter
  • 80 days from transplant
  • 50 Seeds per packet

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
