I found this unusual, little plant at our favorite local greenhouse.
It looked like a potato but the tag said Ground Cherry ‘Goldie’.
I put it in a big pot near the entrance to keep an eye on it.
What a perfect spot for the source of my favorite snack.
This plant is a Physalis relative of Chinese Lanterns/Jack-o-LGround antern plant.
Its little yellow pods contain a juicy sweet berry.
The taste is like pineapple.
It has been dropping dozens of yummy fruits each day for weeks.
I read that it may reseed.
I hope so.

Interesting. I have never heard of that plant.
My Mom grew these for many years and I soon found it cropping up in my garden. It was a bit aggressive in its habit but controllable, and fun to eat!
