Verde is an early variety with tart flavor when young, becoming sweeter as it ripens. Harvest in 85 days. Tomatillo Verde produces large juicy fruits that weigh 3-4 oz. Determinate plants grow 24" tall. Grow two plants to ensure fruit set because two or more tomatillo plants are required for the plants to blossom. 

Plant seeds 1/4" deep then thin to 24" apart. It is best to start seeds indoors.

Medium to large size fruits are ready to harvest when husks split and fruit color changes from a yellow green to medium green. Perfect for Salsa Verde or as a special addition to any Mexican dish.

Tomatillo seeds can be started indoors.

Tomatillos are an ingredient often present in Mexican dishes, and the fruit is grown similarly to a tomato.

Sow seeds 2-3 weeks before the last frost date and transplant when soil is warm.

Each packet contains 30 Tomatillo Verde seeds. Physalis philadelphica. Annual. Open-pollinated, heirloom, non-GMO. Harvest in 85 days. $3.00

Tomatillos differs from green tomatoes as they are usually juicier and not as firm. Though commonly used in sauces and salsa, tomatillos can be used in appetizers, desserts and jams as well. Tomatillos also are known as a husk tomato, due to the papery husk covering the fruit. Make sure to try this amazing Tomatillo Salsa Recipe »

Features.

The Tomatillo is a staple in Mexican cuisine. Its green color and tart flavor are its most distinguishing features. A vibrant and zesty blend of tomatillos and chiles combined with a hint of cilantro give our Tomatillo Verde Sauce its complex flavor and medium heat.

Benefits.

Tomatillos contain a high level of fiber, that can help to improve digestion! One cup of tomatillos contains 2.6 grams of fiber-- this accounts for 10% of the daily fiber needs for women and 7% for men. 2. Tomatillos contain unique antioxidant phytochemicals that have been linked to anti-cancer properties.

Some of the health benefits of tomatillos may include their ability to reduce the chances of diabetes, increase the health of your digestive system, boost the immune system, increase cellular growth, increase energy levels, reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, improve vision health, lower blood pressure, and can help in weight loss efforts.

More Information about planting, growing, and harvesting beets can be found in the Farmer's Almanac Growing Guide.

berry nice

I like to know If cant plant the tomatillo seed on winter time?

We have found that tomatillo seeds overwinter nicely and will sprout when the weather warms up in the spring, so sure, you could sow the seeds in the fall. In fact, we have lots of volunteer tomatillo seedlings every spring where tomatillos had fallen in the fall and left for 'reseeding' some plants for the following year. The seedlings seem to be slightly frost hardy as they sprout and do well even if we have some cold spells in late spring.

You can also grow tomatillos as perennials in zones 10 and 11, so if you're in a climate that has warm weather year-round, you can grow them year-round!

Excited that you added Tomatillo seeds to your lineup!

I've been growing your tomato and pepper seeds for years to make salsas, and I'm excited that you added tomatillos, which are great for making green salsa! I also like that these are organic seeds, thanks for the fast shipping! I'll be starting the seeds this spring, can't wait for the harvest!
