Sweet ground cherries produce fruits that are naturally sweet, with bright acidity and a flavor that’s a cross between a strawberry and pineapple. Containing high amounts natural pectin, husk cherries good for pies and preserves. Once they really start to bear fruit in the early fall, there’s no stopping them. Single ground cherry plants can grow 3-4 feet tall and produce quarts of fruit.

When the plant is left untouched over winter, and the fruit is left to dry in the husk, the pods transform into unique net-like cases. Fun for children and adults to discover in winter.
