Great plant

Okay, these really aren't "tomatillos". They are ground cherries but somewhere in the past someone started calling these Pineapple tomatillo & the name stuck. The flower picture is wrong, too. They really have a flower that looks like Aunt Molly's ground cherries.
But of course anyone who is a ground cherry addict already knows all of this!

I do like these ground cherries. In fact, I like this type better than the "Cape Gooseberries" (Physalis peruviana). I would recommend this variety to everyone & I will continue to grow this variety for years to come (God willing).

They don't taste like Pineapple to me. It seems like every one has a different description for it. One comment that is consistent is, "it's hard to describe the flavor" & I agree. I can't compare it to any known flavor. It's not pineapple, nor strawberry. There is a slight hint of butterscotch. I've also discovered that the more I eat these, the more I like them!
