Tomatillo Plants (Mexican Husk Tomato) – Two Live Plants, Non-GMO

Sold out

Tomatillo plants put out hundreds of small green tomato-like fruits encased in a papery husk. A staple of Mexican cuisine and a must-have for Chili Verde sauce, tomatillos are easy to grow and require the same growing conditions as tomato plants. It has a tart, yet sweet and citrusy flavor, delicious in fresh salsas but also tasty when grilled, mixed into chili and stews, or preserved in jams and jellies. These plants require cross pollination so you need at least two plants together for fruit to form.

How to Grow Tomatillos

As the fruit matures it fills the paper husk that encloses it, then the husk turns brown and splits open by harvest time, showing the green fruit inside. Remove fruits from the plant when husks turn tan and split open and the fruits inside are firm. If frost is expected, remove the entire plant and hang it upside down in a sheltered location to ripen the remaining fruits. Like tomatoes, they will continue to ripen after harvest.
