Aunt Molly's Ground Cherry

Aunt Molly's come with their very own carrying cases! Also know as "Husk Cherry” or “Cape Gooseberry”. They originally came from Poland. they are not really from the tomato family eiher.

Recorded as early as 1837 in Pennsylvania and still common at roadside stands in late summer. Ground Cherry fruits are 1/2” to 3/4” in diameter and are encased in a papery husk that turns brown when the fruits are ripe. We let them fall on the ground before we eat them.

Excellent flavor, notes of pineapple, strawberry and grape with a touch of tomato. It can be used for preserves and pies, over ice cream or in fresh fruit salads. Let them ripen fully to develop their flavor.
