groundcherries that look like mini tomatillos….

24 Aug

Sometimes the smallest morsel packs the most flavour!  These groundcherries (described as mini tomatillos to me) are part of the tomato family and tastes super fruity!  Although they look like gooseberries, they are actually not and grow very much like tomatoes with the exception of having a papery husk surrounding the fruit inside.

These guys are wee but the flavour is intense!  Once the papery husk turns brown and brittle, the fruit inside is ripe.

It’s hard to describe what these tastes like, almost like a mixture of melon and pineapple all at once.  All I know is that once you start you really can’t stop!
