Ground Cherry. (Physalis Pruinosa) 4 October 2011 Ground Cherry. (Physalis Pruinosa) aka Aunt Molly Ground Cherry

Three pounds of ground cherries were picked from two plants. The cleaned weight is 2.5 pounds. They may be eaten raw or cooked. I prefer them cooked. They have a most pleasant taste similar to cooked peaches. They take a long season, so I start the seedlings indoors. They are prolific self seeders also. Any berries indicating green should be discarded, since they contain solanine. The same substance indicated by potatoes turning green when exposed to light.
