£1.45

Oriental Vegetable - Cape Gooseberry

This is also known as Physalis and is a tall growing plant of up to 2 metres high. The perennial plant produces star shaped flowers in July and August which are then followed by green cyclos which turn bright orange-red when the fruits are ripe. They are delicious when eaten raw or can alternatively be made into a delicious jam. They also make a beautiful garnish for desserts to show off to your friends and family.

Sow from February to April. Sow the seeds under glass on the surface of a good quality seed compost, and lightly cover the seed with vermiculite at a temperature of 18-21C. Once the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 9cm pots and grow them on at a minimum temperature of 15C until they are 20cm tall. Transplant into larger containers or growbags and grow under glass, or once all risk of frost has passed move containers outside to a sunny patio.
