Happy New Year! We will not be shipping plants in 2022, but hope to resume in 2023. In the meantime, I recommend Seed Savers Exchange and Territorial Seeds for ordering live plants. They both have good quality and a good selection. Thank you for being the best customers that any business could hope for, and happy gardening! -Margie

Ground Cherry Plants

Home/Ground Cherry Plants
  • First ship date is March 22. Free shipping with $35 purchase! Please note: We now ship via UPS. Also known as Husk Cherry, these one-bite fruits are terrific for snacking... 60 days. OP. Small (3/8" to 5/8") fruits grow inside papery husks, like a tomatillo. But, Ground Cherries are tastier and sweeter eaten fresh. Kids love these. The taste is similar to pineapple. Also makes excellent preserves, pies, and sauce. Short plants, 12" to 18", spread out. Grow in pots or raised beds for easier harvesting. Ripe when pineapple yellow. This is an early variety that should grow just about anywhere. Fruits stay fresh in the husk for a week or more, and are sweetest when they fall off the plant. Within 24 hours of receiving your order, we will e-mail you with a shipping date that we choose based on your last frost date. You are welcome to change the shipping date.

  • First ship date is March 22. Free shipping with $35 purchase! Please note: We now ship via UPS. Super productive and sweet little gems are easy to grow and even easier to eat... 70 days. Open pollinated Heirloom from Poland. Very popular for pies, preserves, and sauces, we also just like to snack on them. 1/2" berries are covered in a papery husk that is brown when fruit is ripe. Unique, very sweet flavor. Sprawling plant. Good for containers and easier to harvest when not sprawled on ground. However, if your kids know where you planted them, you won't ever need to worry about harvesting! Stores for several weeks in the husk. Sweetest when they fall from the plant.
