I think maybe the photos entered for cape gooseberry (golden berry) by tabby are really ground cherry pictures. Take a look and see what you think. I have both plants and those are far more like the regular ground cherries.

Thanks!

I imagine you mean this entry right?
Cape Gooseberry (Physalis peruviana 'Golden Berry')

Tabby hasn't been here for years, Sue. Better call on someone else. Smiling

Yes, that's the entry. The golden berry plant that I have has the purple lines on the berry husk, it isn't solid green. The flowers are very slightly darker and on longer stems, where the ground cherry flowers are closer to the branch.

I'll just move them to the generic Physalis entry.
