Also known as Husk Tomato, The Ground Cherry Tomato is an interesting and versatile native American fruit that was regarded as a delicacy by the Pilgrims. The tasty, cherry-sized fruits grow inside papery husks on short plants. The fruit is enjoyed fresh, dried, and in pies and preserves. Kept in the husk in a cool, dry place, it can be stored well into the winter.Planting guide: Start indoors 8 weeks before time to set in open ground. Cover thinly, then pack firmly and water.
