I am planting Cape Gooseberry plants in Central new Jersey, My question is: After growing all summer will they survive the winter?

Roy, They will not survive the winter. Physalsis peruviana will die if the temperature falls below 30 degrees F. It roots easily from cuttings, though, which allows you to bring plants indoors for winter, and is easy to grow from seed. -Anson
