Easy to grow and very prolific, producing 2-3" round fruits, ripening to yellow-green. Tomatillos, a staple in Mexican dishes, are used for fresh or cooked green sauces. Unlike tomatoes, the tomatillo fruit is covered by a papery, lantern-like husk that splits open at harvest time. Fruits have a citrusy, tart and tangy lemon flavor when picked firm, bright green and big enough to fill the husk. After husks are removed, ripe fruits keep well for up to2 weeks when stored cool. Plants grow vigorously to 3-4 ft. tall and wide. Certified Organic Seed.
