Details

Beautiful fruit and beautiful plant. Sprawling heavily branched plants have deep-deep-green leaves and small, pretty, brown-flecked cupped yellow flowers. Fruits start out deep purplish-green and ripen to a light yellowish green with a large purple blush on the bottom. Flavor is great and yield is heavy, as it is with all tomatillos.

How to Grow

Start tomatillos 6 weeks before last frost. Transplant outdoors after threat of frost has passed. Tomatillos can be staked to make them easier to handle and take up less space in the garden. A simple 4' wooden stake or 4' section of 1" conduit will suffice per plant. (If growing several plants, stake with a basket weave as you would tomatoes, see planting instructions for tomatoes.) Simply tie the stalk to the stake as the plant grows every 6". Harvest fruits when they have filled out the husk. To use, remove the husks and rinse before proceeding with recipe.
