How do I grow Cape Gooseberry?

Sow Ground cherry seeds indoors from February to April in a seed tray filled with sowing soil. Keep the seeds warm and give them enough light. Moisten the soil regularly.

Transplanting

Once the Cape Gooseberry seedlings have their 2nd leaf pair, they can be transplant.

Plant outdoors

Start hardening the Cape Gooseberry plants around mid-May by leaving them outside for a few hours every day. Plant the Cape Gooseberry plants at sunny and sheltered place in the open ground. Keep a distance of 40 x 40 cm between the plants. Give the Cape Gooseberry plant some support if necessary.

Harvesting

At the end of August you can harvest the first Goldberries. The fruits of the Cape Gooseberry are ready for harvest as soon as the lanterns (light brown calyxes) fall off the golden yellow fruits.
