One of the most versatile yet understated vegie garden plants. The sweet fruit are encased in a papery husk that turns brown letting you know when the fruit are ripe. The fruit are the same size as a cherry tomato and can be eaten fresh straight from the vine, made into goosebery jam, or popped into fruit or savoury salads. Grow as you would a tomato. Can jump the garden fence in warmer climates if left unchecked.
A perennial in the tropics, but grown as an annual in cooler climates.
