Ground Cherry Seeds produces a plant that bears berries from the solanaceous family. Ground cherries are bright little fruits that taste like a mix of pineapple, citrus, and tomato, and come wrapped in a husk which, when peeled back, reveals a juicy orange pearl that's delectable in jams, pies, or right off the stem. Just like their tomato relatives, these low, rangy plants grow best when started indoors and then transplanted into a sunny spot with well-draining soil.
Step by Step How to Grow Your Ground Cherry Plant From Seeds!
# 1 | Sow your ground cherry seeds indoors 6–8 weeks before the last frost. Plant seeds ¼ inch deep.
#2 | Keep seeds evenly moist but not soaked. Seeds should germinate in 8-12 days.
#3 | Plant your ground cherry seedlings outdoors two to four weeks after your last expected frost. Be sure to harden off seedlings before planting outdoors. Plants prefer a rich, light, warm soil and a sunny position.
