No, they are different. Anyway, how does it matter as they are both fruits and edible. So you need not worry about eating them.

No, they are different, but they belong to the same genus, which is Physalis. The Cape Gooseberry is the fruit of the species Physalis peruviana, while the Chinese lantern is the fruit of the species Physalis alkekengi. Cape Gooseberry has a pale brown husk surrounding the fruit. The Chinese Lantern Plant has a bright orange husk surrounding the fruit.
