Umm, didn't honestly know there were more than one kind. They are
round, yellowish green to yellow-orange fruit, with ecru papery
lantern husks, tasting similar to pineapple strawberry with a hint of
tomato. They are approx. 1/2" diameter and have many tiny (crunchy)
flat ecru seeds. The pulp inside is the same yellow. The leaves
look similiar to lambsquarters but are slightly fuzzy, with greyish
dark stems, while the shortish plant sprawls out on the ground.
How is the best way to get the seeds out? Same as regular tomatoes,
or cut them open and squeeze them out then clean them and allow to
Am going to try growing them in my garden next year.
