The goldenberry is also known as ground cherry. [2][3][4] The history of P. peruviana cultivation in South America can be traced to the Inca Empire.[5][6] It has been cultivated in England since the late 18th century, and in South Africa in the Cape of Good Hope since at least the start of the 19th century.[2] Widely introduced in the 20th century, P. peruviana is cultivated or grows wild across the world in temperate and tropical regions.
