Ground cherries in Manhattan?

JT123 | Sep 11, 2006 05:49 PM

I am just back from Quebec City where I discovered the most amazing little fruit--ground cherries (cerises de terre) at the farmers market. These round, yellow, cherry tomato-like fruits were surrounded by paper husks (think tomatillo), but with the most remarkable sweet, smoky pineapple-like flavor. Is there anywhere to get these delectable treats in NYC? Perhaps at a greenmarket?

TIA
