    We grow Cape Gooseberry (Physalis peruviana) for jam too but we grow it
as an annual.  We also make jam from Groundcherry (Physalis pruinosa).
Sorry, but I forgot to mention these in my jam list.  These two are made in
limited quantities - in season only)

I've just recently accquirted some Golden Berry jam from my local
organics grocery store, and was stunned with the sweetness/tartiness
that it provided.

Considering how costly it was (approx. $3.70/500ml jar), I wanted to
find out if anybody else has had experience actually growing it in a
temperate climate. Can it survive our harsh winters  here? What are
the ideal conditions to plant seeds?
