Physalis peruviana Cape Gooseberry quart Plant


Quart plant from Physalis pervuinan, Cape Gooseberry Goldenberry, Husk Cherry, Peruvian Ground Cherry, Poha, Poha Berry is a native to Brazil. A soft-wooded, perennial, this vine like plant usually reaching 2 to 3 ft. in height. Under good conditions it can reach 6 ft. but will need support. The plant likes a sunny, frost-free location, sheltered from strong winds. It does well planted next to a south-facing wall or in a patio. In areas where frost may be a problem, providing the plant with some overhead protection or planting them next to a wall or a building may be sufficient protection. Potted specimens can be moved to a frost-secure area. The cape gooseberry seems to thrive on neglect. Even moderate fertilizer tends to encourage excessive vegetative growth and to depress flowering. High yields are attained with little or no fertilizer. These will grow in any well drained soil but does best on sandy to gravelly loam. Very good crops are obtained on rather poor sandy ground.
