Lovely set up
March 12th, 2019  
@randystreat It's called a Physallis Kathy - they're about the size of a small cherry tomato and very tasty!
March 12th, 2019  
beautiful for its colors and composition
March 12th, 2019  
Great shot for your calendar. I love these, but mine aren't doing very well this year. They make amazing jam :)
March 12th, 2019  
Your rainbow month is so fantastic!
March 12th, 2019  
Wonderful close up... great textural details!
March 12th, 2019  
now this is a great one for the challenge. The fruit with it leaves looks so much more interesting than it tastes.
March 12th, 2019  
Great close up.
March 13th, 2019  
Beautiful! What kind of fruit is it?!?
March 14th, 2019  
Congrats on the TT with this crazy looking fruit! Are those leaves or peel?!?
March 15th, 2019  
@gardenfolk Oh goodness, I certainly didn't expect that! Thanks for letting me know:) It's called a Physallis, and the fruit is enclosed in a little case (rather like a Chinese lantern) which splits open. The fruits are about the size of a very small tomato and are very sweet to taste.
March 15th, 2019  
@fbailey Thanks for the explanation...it is a new fruit to me! :)
March 15th, 2019  
@gardenfolk Sorry, it's spelt Physalis and is also known as a Cape Gooseberry. Apparently in New Zealand they make jam with it:)
March 15th, 2019  
well done for making the top twenty with this shot this week
March 15th, 2019  
@shannejw Thanks v much - you beat me to it, was so pleased to see your energy saving pear there too!!
March 15th, 2019  
Well, I got a couple of congratulations, so went to look, when I saw yours there too
March 15th, 2019  
Congratulations on this making it to the Top Twenty for the week! Very deserving!
March 16th, 2019  
@skipt07 Thanks so much Skip, very unexpected!
March 16th, 2019  
@fbailey Hey! I looked this up in a "Field Guide to Produce." It said it is also called a ground cherry, dwarf cape gooseberry, husk tomato, strawberry tomato or physalis and its part of the tomatillo family. I learn something new all the time on 365. Gosh, do you think it has enough names? :)
March 17th, 2019  
@fbailey @gardenfolk It’s beautiful for orange and congrats on being a TT. I had no idea what kind of fruit it was until CC Folk told us. It definitely looks like a tomatillo which I am familiar with, but ours are very green. We use the green ones to make chili verde.
March 17th, 2019  
congrats on TT. i love gooseberries. this is a fab shot!

@shutterbug49 @summerfield Thanks very much, this was a big surprise to me:)
