How Wonderful To Come Across Husk Cherries
Husk Cherries are small orange fruit similar in size, shape and structure to a small tomato, but partly or fully enclosed in a large papery husk. Many Physalis species are called groundcherries. One name for Physalis peruviana is Cape Gooseberry.
I found this fabulous Gooseberry today at the Union Square Farmer's Market. The taste is quite unusual, a cross between a tomato and a grape. An interesting acidity, followed by a smooth sweetness.
Great for salads. I just served in a beautiful bowl.
I love the yields of October!
