A taste of the tropics, these irresistibly sweet, marble-sized fruits will delight you with abundance! At Fruition, we’re often savoring each Organic Cossack’s Pineapple Ground Cherry by the 4th of July and they just don’t stop ’til frost. Popping each golden fruit out of her golden husk is always a joy! We’ve heard of folx making ground cherries pies, jam, chutney and all kinds of wonders; we generally just pop them straight in our mouths, as often as possible.

If you have marauding chipmunks in your garden, for better or for worse, they’ll be delighted you’re growing ground cherries, too! Since the most flavorful ground cherries are those so ripe they fall to the ground, we visit our ground cherries almost daily and gently shake the branches to scoop up the freshly fallen, perfectly ripe fruit before the chipmunks find them.

    These ripen more quickly than Aunt Molly variety so the season for snacking is longer. They are sweet and tasty. The fruits are smaller than the Aunt Molly variety. I will plant both this year.
