Chinese Lantern Gigantea

Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds

(Physalis franchetii) This lovely 2’ perennial produces pretty seed pods, which are bright red-orange and look like glowing Chinese lanterns. Great as a fresh cut flower or dried for craft projects. So popular at farmers’ markets, as everyone just loves these. This variety is extra large, and the berries inside the husk are edible when fully ripe; cook similar to a regular ground cherry. Fun to grow.
