(Physalis ixocarpa) TOP TEN FOR 2022. A unique and delicious heirloom treasure from the mystical town of Malinalco in the southwest of Mexico. Botanical explorer Joe Simcox searched high and low for the fabled variety revered for its extra large fruit and sweet fruity flavor. The 4-inch fruit are completely sheathed in papery husk on productive plants. The flavor is incomparable, notes of green apple, tangy unique, used by Portland Chef Sam Reed in a Romesco sauce! A must for any wonderful salsa and sauce!
