Physalis Confectioner
[0.3 gram]

Physalis Confectioner

The Physalis plant, also called the winter cherry or chinese lantern, has a very attractive appearance which looks like a Chinese lamp. It used commonly for decorative purposes and also cropped for its fruit. A glossy orange fruit with extra big size contains twice the amount of Vitamin C as that in lemons and looks like a blonde-red cherry tomato with a sweeter taste. The flowers appear in midsummer, shells are green in color at first, but it should be harvested when the color changes to orange. The fruit is cropped when the fruit is fully ripe and can be used fresh, juiced, dried or for making jam etc.
Flowers from July to October, and the fruits ripen from August to November. Height 60-80cm.

Sow in spring at 20C in a good seed compost. Keep soil damp but not wet. Polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 21-30 days.
