ground cherry

posted in: gardening | 3

The little fruits of our ground cherry plants are ripening bit by bit. Coco asked about them recently, so I thought I’d show them in a little more detail. I think they are beautiful and amazing, such interesting little fruits with their lantern husks. The fruit is sweet, and the flavor is delicately reminiscent (to me) of pineapple.

    it is so beautiful and must be very rewarding when you open the balloon
    for fruits.

    day. i’m so happy.

    we are huge ground cherry fans here.
    they are super-delicious smashed atop melted brie cheese & scooped up with a baguette.

      Yum, that does sound delicious. I will remember that this summer. We are big brie fans too 🙂
