These large heirloom tomatillos are later than the green ones but worth the wait. The purple color develops after the tomatillos mature and burst open their papery husks.The flavor is tangier than its green colored cousin. Interesting in salsa and fine grilled.
Indoors- 4-5 weeks before last frost and 1/8” deep. Keep soil moist and 75 degrees. Transplant out 24-36” apart after last frost.
Harvest- Husks dries and splits when mature and fruits are pushing out of them.
Tips- Plant and grow like tomatoes and they will need support for their best performance.
