Cape Gooseberry
Physalis peruviana

80 days — Removed from their husks, the fruits are smooth, yellowish-orange in color, and about 1/2 inch in diameter. When ripe, they are quite and sweet and flavorful, mildly tart, and used for fresh eating, jellies and desserts.  Try them as an addition to garden salads and fruit salads.

Although it is indigenous to South America, it has been cultivated in England since the 18th century, the region of the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa since at least the start of the 19th century, and has subsequently spread to Australia and various Pacific islands.

Although it is commonly known as Cape Gooseberry, in other parts of the world it is called, Inca Berry, Aztec Berry, Golden Berry, Giant Ground Cherry, Peruvian Groundcherry, Peruvian Cherry, Poha (in Hawaii), Ras Bhari (in India), Aguaymanto (in Peru), Uvilla (in Ecuador), and Uchuva (in Colombia).

Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
