£2.69

Golden Berry Pineapple - Cape Gooseberry

This is a dwarf variety with branching stems and a neat, bushy habit. Golden Berry 'Pineapple' produces heavy crops of tangy pineapple flavoured fruits in late summer and autumn. The bright orange berries are enclosed by a papery husk creating an attractive Chinese lantern appearance. Physalis peruviana is half hardy and therefore tends to be grown as an annual in the UK. Height and spread: 60cm.

Sow seeds from February to March on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at a constant temperature of around 18-21C until germination, which takes up to 3 weeks. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots and grow on steadily at 15C. Plant out when 2cm high, allowing 2 plants per growbag or one plant per 12cm pot. It can also be planted outdoors once risk of frost has passed.
