Inca berries AKA Cape Gooseberries or Physalis Peruviana

    Hi, I grew there a few years back when I first got an allotment. They grew well and produced loads of fruit but due to the shortish and for them, coolish summers here they never ripened. With the hot summer we had this year, they might have done. I would suggest a green house where they can be nice and hot. 
    They used to just grow anywhere in the garden when I lived in Zimbabwe!

    ps... forgot to say I just grew the seeds in a pot with a bag over them in the conservatory in March/April and potted them on as they got bigger.
