Cape Gooseberry or otherwise known as Physalis Seeds are surface-sown seeds, covered only slightly. They can be slow to germinate. It is important not to allow the soil to dry out.
Containers should be kept in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings.
At about the time of the last frost, set out seedlings into pots. Once Spring has arrived it is time to plant these in your backyard or large pot.
These produce delicious cherry size fruits and are popular throughout all of the islands in the Azores.
