Product Description

The physalis is also called the cape gooseberry, golden berry or ground cherry. Physalis is related to the tomato, not at all related to the gooseberry or the Chinese gooseberry that the common name might suggest. The fruit is a small round berry, about the size of a marble, full of small seeds. It is bright yellow when ripe, and very delicious.

History

Physalis also known as the Cape Gooseberry or Ground-cherry. It was originated in Mexico and was cultivated by the Aztecs centuries before the Spanish explorers introduced it elsewhere.
