New Hanover Ground Cherry

New Hanover Ground Cherry

This heirloom variety was preserved by Katie Hoffman Slonaker (1903- 1983) in New Hanover, Pennsylvania, until becoming a part of the Roughwood Seed Collection.  The New Hanover variety continues to win awards over all other varieties due to its addictively sweet pineapple flavor!


The fruits are an exciting indulgence of individually wrapped, bite-sized little garden candies. They make delicious jams and pies due to the high pectic content or use them fresh in salads, smoothies, and ice cream.


Starter will be in a 4" reusable nursery pot.
