    A purple ground cherry, also known as Physalis grisea, is a type of plant that belongs to the nightshade family. It's native to Southwestern United States and the fruit it produces is encased in a papery husk, similar to other ground cherries. The berries of a purple ground cherry range from a deep purple to almost black in color and are known for their sweet, pleasing flavor. They can be eaten raw, used in baking, or made into preserves.
