Tomatillo - Pineapple - Physalis pruinosa
Tender Annual Tomatillos and ground cherries are closely related members of the nightshade family. This distinctive, cherry sized tomatillo has the sweetness of pineapple along with tomato flavor, all wrapped up in a paper shell. Fun to pick and a novel ingredient in salsas, chutneys, sauces, and pies.
Did You Know? You can dip the fruits in melted chocolate for an unusual dessert.
