This is a plant everyone should grow at least one of. The ground cherry is sweet, tart, and savory. A combination of flavors from a tomatillo and a tomato, you get the best of both worlds from this! It is like candy! Plants produce loads of small paper husk covered fruits that when ripe fall to the ground (hence the name ground cherry), and can be used to make jellies, jams, sauces, preserves, and so much more.
