Germ 7-14 days / Physalis pruinosa
It really tastes like a pineapple! The large spreading plants are 3 feet across and covered with hundreds of fruit that are quite different from other tomatillos. They are only about 3/4 inch in diameter and soft so they are great for eating fresh. They fall from the plant when ripe. Great for preserves and pies. 40 seeds
PINEAPPLE TOMATILLO PLANTING:
Indoors- 6-8 weeks before last frost and 1/8” deep. Keep soil moist and 75 degrees. Transplant out 18-24” apart after last frost.
Harvest- Fruits are golden in color and will fall to the ground when they are ripe.
Tips- Place some type of cloth under the plants for easier harvest.
