Someone is borrowing my Cornicopia II book right now. That book would have some info. I do have Garden Inventory book from the Seed Savers though

I dont see Golden Berry. It was apparently dropped from their sources. They do have a selction ground cherries though.

They do have section of "Currents" or raisan tomatoes (L. pimpinelliforlium)
It is discribed as intencely flavored - sweet/tarrt

Let me know if you want further info

So where does one get this? Seed Savers Exchange and Southern Exposure Seed Exchange do list a few varieties, but where does one look for seeds for all the other varieties?

NE Indiana, zone 5B, where whatever variety of Cape gooseberry I have is looking good and cranking out the fruit. From past memory, I would say that it will be end of July or early August before the first fruit is ripe.
