Trouble-free plant is related to the tomatillo - noticeably are little paper "lantern" enclosed fruits. Easy to grow, prolific, and super sweet. Can be used for preserves, pies, over ice cream, or in fresh fruit saladsnot as big and sweet as some tree fruits, but the only fruit you can grow from seed in your vegetable garden and have fruits the same year you plant them. Works well in containers ,just make sure the container is at least 8 inches deep to allow for its fairly large root systemmake sure they get regular watering, at least one inch per week. Dry conditions will cause them to drop their blossoms without producing fruit.
