Transplant, Ground Cherry-Aunt Molly's
- Fruits grow to 1/2 to 3/4 inch
- Fruits have a papery husk
- Sweet variety that stores well
- 70 days from transplant
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.
