A native plant, these small yellow/orange fruits grow enclosed in their own papery husk. Possessing the texture of a tomato, the taste of ground cherries is sweeter than a tomato, but not as sweet as a sweet cherry. They're great eaten plain and fun to pop out of their husks and into your mouth. They're also delicious in salads, salsas, or preserves. Or, indulge in making something like an old fashioned ground cherry pie.
