Ground Cherry, Aunt Molly's

  • A fun garden plant to grow. Small orange fruits are encased in a papery husk. Ready to eat when they fall off the plant and the fruits are a deep orange colour. Papery husks are removed when ready to eat or can be left on for storage. Fruits are great for fresh eating, tarts or jam. Sweet, pineapple-like flavour.

    75 days to maturity, approx. 140 seeds per 0.1g
