Aunt Molly's Ground Cherry

$ 2.50

70 days. Aunt Molly's Ground Cherry is EASY to grow!  Great for jams, preserves or eaten fresh.

First recorded in Pennsylvania in 1837, this historic Polish variety is a delightful combination of sweet and tart, with notes of vanilla and pineapple.

The plants have a sprawling habit and produce ½-¾" fruits encased in a papery husk. Unripe fruit — light green — can be toxic in large quantities.

Ripe fruits are light to golden yellow. When ripe the fruit turns a golden orange color and drops to the ground.

Contains approx 20 heirloom seeds
