Once a very common home garden crop, ground cherries have recently become increasingly hard to find. Excellent citrus flavor, can be used fresh in salads or for preparing jams, pies, and sauces. Bushy plants grow 24” tall, are extremely productive and great for containers. Encased in a paper-like husk and will store 3-4 weeks under cool & dry conditions.
