Aunt Molly's Ground Cherry
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
Sow seeds 1/4" deep. Keep soil moist but not waterlogged.
Seeds usually germinate in 7-14 days.
I grew these years ago. And there are sweeter and have more of a fruity taste than the regular peruvian ground cherry. It's my favorite. If you've never had this before, I highly reccommend it!
