Have You Ever Had a Ground Cherry?

posted Jul 7, 2011, 8:09 PM by Mary Fendrick

Ground cherries are a fruit new to Rock Hill Orchard.  They are a small orange fruit similar in size and shape to a cherry tomato. The fruit is covered in papery husk. Flavor is a pleasant, unique tomato /pineapple like blend. The ground cherry is very similar to the cape gooseberry, both having similar, but unique flavors.  We have just started harvesting them.  Come in to the market and try one!  Recipes can be found on our Recipes for In-Season Produce page.
