Anyone know what this is?

Hi, as you can see I have a quite large plant growing next to my toms, can anyone identify this for me please.  Have left it a while to see how it developed...   thanks Tony

    Runner beans?

  • I grow runners outside so perhaps one seed escaped, but I don't think so it's got the wrong growing habit but it may be who knows. Thanks Tony.

    It's a species of Physalis. Maybe Cape Gooseberry.

  • Hi Asarum, i think you are right. Strangely i grew Cape Gooseberry in the same greenhouse about 4yrs ago ! but they never grew as good as this one, i will leave it to see what happens thanks for your help.

           Thanks again Tony.
