CROSLEY, Luke et al. Rescate del cultivo de Goldenberry (Physalis peruviana) en los Andes del norte de Chile. Idesia [online]. 2019, vol.37, n.4, pp.115-118. ISSN 0718-3429.

The Physalis peruviana, is an Andean crop with a wide distribution in South America, is also found in almost all the high sectors of the tropics and several parts of the subtropics worldwide. In Chile, there is only one record of the crop in the south of the country, and there is no evidence for this species in the northern Andes sector of the country. This study evaluated the adaptation of the P. peruviana crop to the current edaphological conditions of the Andean localities of northern Chile, in addition to the quality of the fruit. The characterization of waters and soils of the studied areas comply with the cultivation parameters for this species. Besides, agronomic management was established according to the ecological floor, to rescue an Andean crop forgotten for decades in this sector.
