Tomato fans: How you can get free groundcherries and goldenberries for your garden
from Los Angeles Times
It’s pretty clear that Americans are tomato-crazy — a summer garden without tomato plants is as likely as the Fourth of July without flags. So why isn't there more interest in their Physalis plant cousins, the husked fruit known as goldenberries, groundcherries and tomatillos? Tomatillos are a staple in Mexican salsas and sauces, such as chili verde, and can be found in many supermarkets, but groundcherries and goldenberries are rarely grown in the U.S. these days.
