    Here is my trial of growing Physalis (Ground Cherry) from seeds. I got the seeds from the actual berry, the berry holds tens of seeds that can be separated from the juce useing a strainer (sieve). The seeds sprouted very fast (3 days from planting). Here are the seedlings after 3 weeks (Photo taken 12 March 2018):
