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.
