Cape Gooseberry plants
Product Code : OVP-CG Barcode : 1116123456825
5 healthy growing young Cape Goosberry plants.
As the Latin name Physalis peruviana suggests, this plant originates from Peru but has become commonly known as the Cape Gooseberry due to its growing popularity in South Africa since the 1800's.
This plant will grow tall and in July/August produces pretty yellow flowers followed by bright orange yellow fruits formed within a delicate papery pod.
With a gorgeously sweet flavour these are perfect for eating raw and are great in fruit salads, fruit pies or use to create delicious jam.
These plants will arrive bare-rooted with an approximate height of 10-25cm.
These young plants are delivered from late April (depending upon seasonal weather conditions) as soon as they are at a suitable size for planting into your garden.
You will receive an email approx 1 week before dispatch, and another on the day the plants leave us so you can prepare for their arrival.
Availability: April - July
