1 Packet (15 Golden Berry Seeds) (TT00119)
Water Physalis plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist and feed regularly with a high potash plant food. Golden Berry plants may require staking. Harvest Chinese Lantern fruits in autumn when the husks turn brittle and pale brown in colour, and the fruits within them are a bright golden orange. Store Golden Berries in their husks in a warm place indoors. Caution: Except for the berry itself, all parts of Golden Berry plants are harmful if eaten.

Good plants but unsure about the fruit 2016-08-25
I have grown these two years running now, and they have been very successful, growing well and producing a lot of fruit. However, I have been unsure about eating the fruit as it never turns the deep orange-gold colour of cape gooseberries that you buy in the supermarket and nor does it have the same rich flavour. It tastes pleasant but nothing like the physalis that you buy. I'd be interested to know whether this is just the variety or whether the fruits are for some reason not ripening fully, or maybe something else is wrong...
T&M replied on 2016-08-26: Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that your Gooseberries are not as you expected despite growing so well. If you'd like to send a photo to our Customer Care team on firstname.lastname@example.org one of our agents will be happy to look into this for you.
Golden Berry 'Pineapple' (Fruits in one Year) 2012-02-01
I planted these seeds in pots & transplanted them outside forgotten about them when weeds took over. When I remove the weeds there were fruits on the plant I was excited. Fruits in one year.
Very impressive 2010-06-10
These seeds germinate well, and the plants grow just as described - healthy and fruitful dwarf plants. The fruits are encased in their papery cases, and drop off when ripe, so there's no problem with harvesting! And they make a very impressive garnish or addition to fruit salad and you can include them in cooked dishes or dip them in chocolate for a treat :)
