A brilliant addition to the greenhouse
Originally from Peru, the Cape Gooseberry (also known as Physalis) produces bright orange fruits that puts a tropical spin on your traditional gooseberry. These round, cherry-sized fruits grow best in a greenhouse or polytunnel. The plants can reach 1m, and the fruit grows inside a papery husk – harvest them in early autumn when the husks have turned brittle and the fruits are a bright orange.

Number of plants: 1 potted plant – biodegradable 3l pot

In the kitchen: These little fruits are delicious eaten straight from the plant (be sure to discard the husk.) They can also be added to salsas, jams cakes and desserts.
