    Ground Cherries are in the same genus as tomatillos. The Smithsonian describes the ground cherry as a “cherry tomato injected with mango and pineapple juice and looks like an orange pearl encased in a miniature paper lantern.” I won’t even try to beat that description which is absolutely perfect.

    Ground Cherries are hyper-seasonal and so they won’t be around long. Growing Hearts has a few but you best get to the market early. Their common name stems from the fact that the fruit falls to the ground when it is ripe. Some farmers call them simply, “ground tomatoes” but they are also known as husk cherries or strawberry tomatoes. They are super versatile and suitable in both savory and sweet preparations.cherries1

    3. Layer halved ground cherries with fresh tomatoes and basil for an easy appetizer.

    4. Make a simple salad from greens, ground cherries and goat cheese, or get a little more complex with husk cherry Waldorf salad.

    5. Ground cherry jam is “easy peasy,” we hear.
