I think those might actually be dirigible plums! :)
Elaine ~ don't these look like the ground cherries we had at Smorgasborg?!
Just a friendly warning, they are very cool to look at however are very invasive!
Are these the same as Cape Gooseberry (a relative of tomatillos)?
The laterns look full but they aren't they are just hallow lanterns that resemble a fruit but nothing in them but air... They dry by fall and are kind of cool for dried arrangements.
So not a ground cherry? And it's a pepper?
My mother grew these....love them!
My mother grew these also! Her plant has been around forever.
Love these & would love to find seed for a start...
these are actually NOT HOLLOW!!! Inside each lantern is a bright orangey red seed ~ these self sow and can become very invasive - though plants are easily pulled if you stay on top of them!!! Where I live on east coast of USA there is also a small winged critter that often eat the leaves of the plant and they can become very unsightly!
