Cape Gooseberry/Goldenberry (Physalis peruviana)

Shrubby plant growing up to 2m tall, 3m wide. Yellow flowers with chocolate blotch centre make way for sweet orange fruits in papery pods. Fruit picked with pods left on can be stored. Plants fruit better in poorer soils.

Can be grown in pots or planted outside (preferably on a south or west-facing wall) from May to August. Plants will die back over winter. Roots that are well mulched should send up new growth in late spring.
