Physalis/Ground Cherry growing wild
« on: August 30, 2015, 05:58:47 AM »
I found a ground cherry plant growing next to my garden and since I've never planted any I'm assuming birds may have brought me some Seeds  :).  It has a green husk when unripe.  Once ripe the husk and Fruit fall off the plant.  Fruit is yellow when ripe and about the size of a dime.  Are all ripe physalis edible?  If not, how can I be sure this one is?  It grew quickly and began flowering and fruiting before a foot tall.  Seems like a good one and I wanna try it but figured I'd ask some of your opinions first.  Thanks in advance for any info and help.
