'Poha berry'

'Poha berry'


An old time Hawaiian favorite.  Easy to grow, delicious sweet, tart, and musky fruits resemble small tomatillos (to which it is closely related).  When cared for, plants will remain productive for 1 year or more with periodic flushes of flowering and fruiting.  May need to be pruned back at times.  Likely to need to control for mites.  Great eating out of hand, in salsas, jellies/jams, or syrups.  Start in nursery and transplant out into garden/field.
