Toma Verde is an early variety. Medium to large sized fruits are ready to
harvest when husks split and fruit color changes from a medium green to a yellow-green. Flavor is tart when young and fruit becomes sweeter as it ripens. Perfect for Salsa Verde (Tomatillo Sauce) or as a special addition to any Mexican Dish or salad. We use the Tomatillo sauce on eggs, tacos, burritos and to flavor soups and salad dressings! Uniform fruit and high yields. Semi-determinate.
Soil & Water: Tomatillos love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Soak the soil 4-6″ deep at 7-day intervals. Mulch to preserve moisture. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering.
