The development of crop cultivation technologies is required to augment crop productivity. It is critical to feed the expanding population in the world. This study aims to characterize the growth of groundcherry (Physalis angulata L.) under low salinity. The study was carried out in Bangkalan, a district on Madura Island. The treatments consisted of the application of 0 mM salinity concentration (A1) and the application of 20 mM salinity concentration in the vegetative stage (A2), generative stage (A3), and during cultivation (A4). The study was designed using eight replication in a randomized block design. Each replication comprised three plants. The root length, leaf number, height of the plant, stem diameter, fruit number, and fresh and dry weights, were measured to determine growth. The study result showed that low salinity affected the leaves number, fruit number, and dry weight. The application of 20 mM salinity concentration at the generative stage (A3) and during cultivation (A4) gave the highest growth of groundcherry.
