The flavor of the fresh fruits is very intense and quite different from Aunt Molly's.

With a 176-day growing season, I think I'm about at the lower limit for being able to get much production out of Inca berries. Those with a significantly shorter growing season will likely get nothing without some supplemental heat, greenhouse or high tunnel.

I planted my first round on January 6th this year. Some of those seeds are still germinating. Here are the latest pics of some of the larger seedlings.

I Appreciate you showing the picture of the Ground Cherries plants. Maybe people can look around the yards, garden & famers to see if the plants are growing there.
May God Bless you and my Garden, Amen
