|Comment||Thank you! A friend gave me an upright growing ground cherry plant last year. I had saved seeds, and started 3 new plants this year which are growing horizontally rather than vertically like the parent plant. My friend suggested that it had crossed with a tomatillo. (I hadn't even thought of that possibility). Thank you for your answer, however I don't understand why saved seed from a vertical plant grew 3 horizontal growing plants (???). When they fruit I will know if they taste the same. Thanks again! DAWN|
