   HesterB's Cape Gooseberry x 1 Established

Plant: Cape gooseberry (Physalis peruviana) |

  • 0
  • Very Happy

Cape Gooseberry plants appear where they will in our garden. Some even popped up in the glasshouse where they grow like triffids.
Occasionally we have made jam with them. Usually we eat them au naturel.
The chooks love them.
A sight that made me giggle was Goldie the hen, racing down the yard with a Cape gooseberry in her beak. She had found it during an illicit visit over the fence and she was running fast to make sure she got away with it.
