There are up to 90 different species of physalis worldwide and they grow mainly in America. The fruits grow on a bush in a lampinion-like sheath. The aroma of the orange tropical fruits tastes pleasantly fine and sour. The tropical Andean berry originates from the highlands of Peru and was only brought to Europe in the 19th century.
