This plant is related to the Tomato and grows in the same places and in the same manner. The fruit are encased in a husk which disintegrates as it ripens. The marble sized fruit are lovely when eaten straight from the vine but also make great pies or can be used for jams etc.. It is a native of South America but grows well even in Tasmania. Prepare garden bed with well composted enriched soil. The seed is small, so carefully sprinkle on top of light airated soil mix, spacing two seeds every 60cm apart. Water in gently and this will cover the seed lightly at the same time. Thin seedlings to healthiest one, and let grow on. Alternatively, sow seed in a seedling tray or pots using same technique either with composted soils mix, or seed raising mixture, and when seedlings reach a reasonable height, plant out into the garden in desired spot. Full sun is prefered. In cooler climates, this is best treated as a annual, though in warmer climates, can grow up to 1m and is thought of as perennial. Produces small fruit about the size of a marble that is golden in colour. The fruit tastes sweet and is very juicy. Best eaten fresh, though you can make jams and preserve them.
