A conversation piece at markets, well liked by children. This old-fashioned tomato family member bears 1/2– 3/4" sweet golden berries inside papery husks, resembling small, straw-colored Japanese lanterns. The flavor is quite sweet and a bit wild. Plants are profusely branching, prolific, and drop ripe fruits. Fruits can be eaten raw, dried like raisins, frozen, canned, or made into preserves, cooked pies, and desserts.
Sow 4-6 seeds per inch 6-7 weeks before transplanting out and grow without support. Seeds are slow to germinate compared to tomatillos and tomatoes, requiring about 2-3 weeks to germinate. Keep soil moist until emergence. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost spacing plants 18-24" apart.
