I was given some "Cape Gooseberry" seeds by a friend. I expected pretty, brown "paper lanterns" with an orange, edible fruit inside. Instead I have light beige "lanterns" with a creamy-yellow fruit bursting out! Help - are they triffids? Here are pictures of the various plant parts and the fruit...
Je pense que vous avez raison, les fruits seront comestibles si elle est angulata.
Nous allons les essayer pour le désert après notre déjeuner demain pour essayer le goût. Je posterai la suite le lundi - si je ne suis pas malade d'ici là * sourire *!
I had a Google Search with the information that Dany gave me, once I knew for sure it was a Physalis. I had looked for Cape Gooseberry and never come up with an image of the fruit that looked right. With Dany's info I was able to have another go! Thank-you Dany!
The Physalis I have isn't angulata after all - it is Physalis ixocarpa (Tomatillo)!
