Pineapple Ground Cherry

Part of our Harvest Select line, available only at The Home Depot!

Its name may be a misnomer—it’s not a pineapple or a cherry—but it IS sweet, fruity, and delicious! Pineapple Ground Cherries add interest to your garden with unique, pretty, papery husks dangling from short, spreading vines. Closely related to tomatillo but with a sweet, complex flavor, the golden yellow fruit is perfect for snacks, preserves, dessert toppings, or as the base for an interesting salsa. A prolific producer, let the husk-covered fruit fall to the ground before collecting, and remove the husk prior to enjoying this unique edible!
