Aunt Molly’s Ground Cherry, 20 seeds per package. 
Non GMO, open pollinated.

The plant has a sprawling habit you might consider trellis or staking the plant and it produces ½” -¾" fruits encased in a papery husk that turns brown when the fruits ripen and drops to the ground when fully ripen.

A nice sweet snack that can be frozen and a fun plant to get the kiddos involved. The plant is a little slow growing but once the weather is warm they take off like crazy.

Prolific and sweet
Fruits grow to ½ to ¾ inch
Fruits have a papery husk
Sweet variety that stores well

Outdoor, plant 12 – 18” apart

Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Plant out when the danger of frost has passed. Excellent results when grown on landscape cloth, which suppresses weeds and makes collecting the fruits easier.

Note: My experience with this plant is it does not like hot Summers that stay at 100 plus temps all day. I planted some in containers that get morning sun until about 3pm in the afternoon then that area goes to shade and they did very well. I planted some in a garden bed that was shaded in the afternoon by tall sunflowers and zinnias and they did very well. I planted some in a full sun bed and my temps were 100 plus for many days and they did not survive even though I watered consistently and had a good ground cover mulch.
