    I assume you mean one of the physalis plants. I love the fruits, a golden berry in a papery husk. They are tropical/sub tropical plants I think. I certainly haven't grown them. You should get some cultivation hints if you Google it if no one on the forum can help.

    Difficult to stop them growing once they get started.  I grew them in a greenhouse.  If you can grow tomatoes you'll find them easy.

    Best to grow them against a wall where you can tie them in or tie them to supports.

    thankyou for your replies,will try one in the greenhouse with the toms and find aplace in the veg patch for a couple and maybe one in the border with the flowers looking forward to the learning curveimage

    MM.............Golden Berries can grow to rather large plants......1 mt tall and the same spread............I find you you need a good summer to get a decent harvest but I've only grown them outsideimage
