Tomatillo, also called Mexican ground cherry or Mexican husk tomato is an annual plant of the nightshade family and its tart edible fruits. The plant is native to Mexico and Central America, where it has been an important food crop for millennia. The fruits can be eaten raw and are sometimes made into soups, jams, or chutneys . In Mexico and Guatemala, tomatillos and spicy peppers are commonly roasted and then ground together to form salsa verde, a green sauce used as a condiment on meats and other foods. Tomatillos are a good source of dietary fibre, vitamin C, vitamin K, and niacin.
VARIETY FOR 2022
Early green tomatillo. Early maturing, large, flat-round green fruits.
Pick fruit when they fill out their husks and the husks just begin to split. If the fruit is still small and hard and the husk is still quite loose, it is too early to harvest.
This plant grows very large and much like an indeterminate tomato, with vines that need trellising or staking. It is unsuitable to be grown indoors.
