Ground Cherry

Looks very similar to a tomatillo. Grows about 3 feet tall, and has lobed leaves about 4 inches long. The plant is grown mostly for its fruit, a small sweet sphere about the size of a cherry tomato, with the flavor of pineapple and tomato.

The fruit grows inside a paper husk, just like a tomatillo.

Fruits are ripe when the husk turns brown
