Grow a garden filled with Ground Cherry Tomatillo fruits, from freshly harvested Physalis peruviana seeds. Ground Cherry, also known as Cape Gooseberry, or Golden Berry is a variety of Tomatillo that is used for preserves, jellies and jams. The fruits are about 1 inch in diameter and boast an unusual, yet sweet flavoring, which is a cross between a pineapple and a tomato. The plants themselves will grow to a mature height of roughly 2 or 3 feet tall, producing high yields of small, paper husked, golden cherries, through the Summer months.


Ground Cherry Tomatillo is categorized as an annual variety. This means that the plants will grow quickly, producing flowers, fruits and seeds all within a single growing season. Check out our Tomatillo seed category for additional varieties, including "Purple Tomatillo" and "Grande Rio Verde."

For many Northern gardeners, tomatillos are best established indoors, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Start in peat pots, sowing each seed at a depth of 1/4” under topsoil. The use of small stakes is not needed for this variety, as its growth is determinate. When the weather is warm & all danger of frost has passed, transplant or direct sow your tomatillo plants outdoors.

Tomatillos will thrive in an area of full sunlight with temperatures of at least 65F or higher. They prefer a rich soil, that is filled with organic matter. Make sure that the sowing medium is also well drained, as this is very important for a healthy root structure. Adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil, can improve your drainage. Water daily with a light moisture setting to avoid drowning the seed.

Tomatillo seeds typically germinate in roughly 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants themselves grow to a mature height of up to 2 or 3 feet tall and can spread 2 feet wide. Ground Cherry plants will need a small amount of area to grow and can be spaced about 24 inches apart from one another, in rows spaced 24 inches apart. The small fruits will measure about a half inch to an inch in diameter and can be harvested in 70 to 80 days after transplanting.

Ground Cherry Tomatillo fruits will be ready for harvesting in roughly 70 to 80 days. The fruits will develop a papery husk, and the fruits will willingly drop to the ground when they are ready to be consumed. Ground Cherry fruits can be stored in the fridge, in ziplock bags for a good two weeks, and can also be frozen as well.
