Present review article reveals the importance of different species of genus Physalis (L.) distributed in India and this extensive research information on different species is significant for future researchers worldwide. In this article cytomorphological, phytochemical, biological activities and ethnobotanical inputs have been extensively recorded for different species of the genus Physalis (L.). As a part of
our investigation on cytomorphological and phytochemical aspects for important medicinal plants from India, the aim of this review article is to provide precise, truthful and detailed information of six Indian species of the genus Physalis (L.) viz., (P. alkekengi L.; P. angulata L.; P. ixocarpa Brot.
