Item Details

Easy-to-grow, prolific, and super-sweet, this ground cherry works well for preserves and pies, over ice cream, and in fresh-fruit salads—or can simply be eaten straight out of the garden. The plants have a sprawling habit and produce ½-¾" fruits encased in a papery husk that turns brown when the fruits ripen. This beloved variety takes its name from an ice cream stand, named not for a dear aunt, but for a cherished pet dog of the owners of Territorial Seed.

Great flavor and productive garden snack.

by

My mother loves these. she washes and then freezes them individually and then has them as a snack. Sweet flavor and very productive. Fun to grow with kids also since they are so different. It does need a good amount of space on the sides since they spread out.
