This heirloom is not actually a cherry, but rather a small ground tomato. The fruits were recorded in horticultural literature as early as 1837 in Pennsylvania and are still common today at roadside stands in late summer. This outstanding Polish variety is prized for its clean flavor, with hints of vanilla and pineapple. Because of their high pectin count, the Ground Cherries can be used for preserves, pies, over ice cream or in fresh fruit salads.
Double Oak Farm provides fresh local produce to Columbus, Indiana and the surrounding area.

After a very long search, in August 2012 we finally purchased a property with which to explore our agricultural ambition. The rectangular 47 acres sits just an hour or so south of Portland off of highway 213.
Dietz Produce is a family-run business that has supplied our local community with fresh fruits and vegetables for over 30 years. Our roadside stand is situated along the historic Lincoln Highway, 1.1 mile west of Wrightsville. We also have a stand at York's Central Market House.

and Frank, moved from the family farm in Ohio to "The Switch", as it
was locally known, in Elora, TN, just 30 miles north of Huntsville, Al.
