Days to Maturity: 70
Also known as Cape Gooseberries. Fruit grows inside a papery husk, similar to a tomatillo, but they mature to a golden orange colour and have a long shelf life if left in their husks, at least 3 months. The fruits have a sweet, tropical taste, similar to a pineapple, combined with the texture of a tomato or grape.
