Jerusalem Cherry plants have branches loaded with brightly colored fruit making this a favorite ornamental indoor plant in fall and winter. Jerusalem Cherry makes an attractive patio plant, where it will get the direct sun it needs to grow, flower and produce fruit. Just be sure to bring this tender perennial back inside before the temperature drops in autumn. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy. Always use lukewarm water to water your tropical plants; cold water is a shock to them.
