I haven't tried ground cherry. I have recipes saying the two are

When I grew cape gooseberry, I had a very hard time getting myself to
appreciate that it should be used as a fruit. My background is
Irish/Italian/Mexican, and that last part is very, very familiar with
tomatillos. I see golden berry, I think tomatillo. And, like tomatillos,
they can be used to make salsa; though sweet/hot, not green tomatoey/hot.
So I used them in salsas and vegetable salads. This was good, but I
certainly wasn't exploring their usual uses.
This thread has made me want to give them another chance.

Cape gooseberry (from recent experience): very sweet tasting/sapid,
basically if you have a sweet tooth then you would wiley's for this
Ground cherry on the other hand is more down to earth, syrupy, easy to
spread in your mouth taste. (more of a favorite)
