in my garden

Dug up some dirt from a garden that was being demoed, this grew and I wasn't sure if it is a weed or not. Any ideas? Not a vine, grows like a pepper or tomato.

Ground Cherry (Physalis). It's a weed in my area

Reading up on them, thank you! They sound interesting and yummy. Are they not?

RE: in my garden

I've never tried one. I believe the fruit is toxic if it's not ripe, so be careful.

If it came from a garden it might be tomatillo, Physalis philadelphica.
