Ground Cherry Seeds - Aunt Molly's
(Physalis) 65 days. Annual, but self-seeds readily. Polish heirloom.
"Aunt Molly" did well when she gathered seeds for this beauty! Aunt Molly's ground cherry is sweet, tangy and SOOO prolific! This fun garden snack if a great one for kids, who love unwrapping the 3/4 inch golden berries.
Berries are ripest when husks turn a sandy colour, dry out and fall to the ground. Plants die in the Winter, but any berries you missed in late-Summer will happily sprout up in Springtime, offering you an everlasting ground cherry patch.
