MAZORRA, MANUEL FERNANDO et al. Anatomic Aspects of Formation and Growth of the Cape Gooseberry Fruit Physalis peruviana (Solanaceae). Acta biol.Colomb. [online]. 2006, vol.11, n.1, pp. 69-81. ISSN 0120-548X.
The anatomical changes in reproductive structures were observed and described frrom button to mature fruit and the phenological states and the structural development of the Cape gooseberry fruit, ecotype Colombia, were established settled down. This investigation was made in a commercial Cape gooseberry (Physalis peruviana) orchard located in the municipality of Granada, Cundinamarca, Colombia. The study confirmed that anatomically the Cape gooseberry fruits, ecotype Colombia, and ruderal type are similar, which demonstrates the absence of appreciable anatomical changes that explain the greater size of the fruits of ecotype Colombia.
