Grow Tomatillos!

Jul 02, 2012
Blog type:

I am growing yellow tomatillos to use in Mexican dishes like chile verde stew, guacamole, quesadillas, salsas, and sauces.  I harvest the Tomatillo Verde fruits when they are still green to capture that tart, lemony taste.
Tomatillos also come in purple varieties which are sweeter and best harvested when they are fully mature and used for preserves.  Both types of fruit are grown enveloped in a papery husk.  The fruit will fill out the husk which will split and fold back when when the fruit is ripe.

What a beautiful Tomatillo! Did you grow this from seed? Are your culture methods spelled out in your blog? In haste today ...
Yes I did! The growing methods are detailed in my blog. Thanks...
