Physalis pruinosa.  Aunt Molly's ground cherry is a Polish heirloom variety that produces by late summer. The plants and fruits resemble tomatillos, with each fruit growing inside a papery husk called a calyx. But fruits mature to a golden orange colour, and drop to the ground when ripe. The sweet little fruits will store for up to three months if kept in their husks, but you’ll want to use them faster than that in jams, fruit salads, and sauces. Aunt Molly’s originated in Poland and are productive in coastal gardens.

Plant in full sun.  Requires regular watering for good production.  Plants need a little support.  Tomato cages work well to keep branches off the ground.
