Disappointing ground cherries
I was so excited to be growing ground cherries this year. How special and exotic! Well, maybe they should stay "exotic", cause I can definitely live without them. At least that's how I feel about the Aunt Molly's ground cherry seeds I bought from Reimer Seeds. The fruit they produced were very small, less than dime-sized and the flavor was just too weird for me. It was sweet mixed with tomatillo flavor, but not in a good way. Maybe I should have bought the Yellow Husk variety or the Cape Gooseberry. Or maybe I should have bought my seeds from somewhere else besides Reimer. (They don't have the best reputation...) Did anybody else have good luck with ground cherry this year?
