Tomatillo/Ground Cherry

Tomatillo:
Physalis ixocarpa
Start indoors 4-5 weeks before planting out. Sow seeds .3 cm deep and keep moist until germination occurs. Transplant plants 60-75cm apart once soil warms up, approximately 2 weeks after it is safe to set tomatoes out. Allow plants to sprawl. Fruit ripens continuously until frost.

 Ground Cherry:
Physalis pruinosa
Start ground cherries indoors 6-7 weeks before your frost free date. Sow seeds .3 cm deep and keep moist until germination occurs. Seeds are slow to germinate needing about 2 weeks more than tomatillos or tomatoes. Transplant plants 60-75cm apart once soil warms up and allow plants to sprawl. Fruit ripens continuously until frost and drop to the ground when ripe. Mulch under plants helps keep fruit clean. Harvest regularly to encourage fruiting.
