Cape Gooseberry

Common names Cape GooseberryGoldenberryHusk CherryPeruvian Ground CherryPoha Berry Herbs in the Physalis species belonging to the Solanaceae family are both annual as well as perennial and bear spherical fruits each of which is surrounded by a case resembling a bladder. When the fruit ripens, this bladder-like husk becomes papery or wispy. Although more that 70 species of herbs belong to the Solanaceae family, only a handful of them actually have any economic worth. This flowery and herbaceous (soft-wooded) plant is perennial and normally reaches a height of two to three feet. The calyx of the herb inflates after the deflowering giving rise to a husk that is straw colored and many times larger compared to the fruit it enfolds. The cape gooseberry was first adopted in the Cape of Good Hope on the Atlantic coast on the southern tip of South Africa and this gave the plant its name. Parts used Fruits.
