Nutritional Properties of Physalis Fruit

by | May 21, 2018 | Physalis Project

In addition to their unique appearance and sweet taste, groundcherries and goldenberries are considered a healthy fruit. As your fruit start to ripen keep in mind the nutritional profile that is being developed.

Some of the nutritional benefits reported in literature are as follows:

  • Good Source of vitamins A, B, and C
  • Similar level of vitamin C to oranges, more Vitamin C than apple
  • 42% of fatty acids in fruit are linoleic acid
  • Rich in antioxidants


The first fruits are just starting to develop on my plants that I started at the end of March. Hopefully you all will begin to see fruit soon!
