Golden Berry 'Gigante'
Tall, erect, sticky-haired stems carry sizeable 'paper lanterns' which contain the largest and juiciest fruits of all the golden berries. This is the physalis variety sold at inflated prices in supermarkets and used to adorn expensive desserts in restaurants.
Slow to germinate. Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into pots.
