Golden berry - Physalis peruviana -Cape gooseberry

 

Originally from Peru & Brazil

 

A great source of  of vital nutrients including beta-carotene, protein (16%), bioflavonoids, and vitamin A and is one of the only fruits to have a complete range of B Vitamins, including B12, which vegans know is difficult to find in plant form.

A really healthy snack, and their sweet & tart flavor great in salads, yogurts, oatmeal, cookies and desserts , marmalade & and as dried fruit.

Easy to grow. Needs plenty of water. BUT no need to fertilize. Fertilizer seems to  promote excessive leaf growths & might not set fruit at all. Without fertilizer plants will produce plenty of berries

In frost free areas, it is a perennial. In light frost, can just cover it up . In colder areas, can be grown as annual

Ready for harvest in 14-16 weeks after planting.

 MATURE HEIGHT: 3-5 FT

Currently growing in 4" pot -second picture is of average size plant for sale
