Ground Cherries

McCollum CSA Ground Cherries
It’s a real plant: Physalis pruinosa, aka the “ground cherry.” … These little gems are in the same genus as tomatillos (Physalis philadelphica)—hence the similar papery husk—and the same family as tomatoes. Ground cherries taste slightly sweet and tropical, with a texture that’s somewhere between a tomato and a grape.
