This tomatillo variety is a heavy producer of large, 3 oz apple-green fruit. The medium-sized plant is determinate and won’t require staking. Excellent flavour. Tomatillos have a firmer texture than tomatoes and are more cold hardy. Tomatillos are an excellent source of iron, magnesium, potassium, Vitamin C and K, fibre, niacin, and manganese. Harvest the tomatillos when the husks turn brown and split, or when the fruit falls from the plant. For best results, plant at least 2 tomatillo plants. Blooms need to be cross-pollinated in order to produce fruit.
