TOMATILLO (85 days heirloom)

Fruits resemble Chinese Lanterns. The tomato-like fruit grows to about 2 inches inside a papery husk. Harvest when the tomatillo is just turning yellow. They will be hard. Can be stored for 1 to 2 months in a cool dry place. Use in Mexican sauces or salsas. Grow as you would tomatoes. Height will be 4 feet, so provide good support. Very prolific. 40 seeds.

PLANTING:

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.

Not so great

Got seeds, followed directions completely. Had 2 sprouts, 1 died the next day, the other died a little over a week later. Neither got large enough to transplant.

Hi Debra - Tomatillos like to germinate in temperatures of about 70' - did you supply bottom heat to the plants, and cover them with a dome or plastic? This will definitely help. Pinetree Garden Seeds

Pinetree tomatillo

Great germination (100%) on 10 starts. 5 starts were transplanted to garden in last week of May. Wet & cold June, but have blossoms a week ago. Very pleased.

Fabulous

Grew these in N Va in 2017. Grew very well and have a bumper crop of tomatillos. Plants have an ***** form with strong central stem compared to variety I bought locally from nursery which tended to sprawl. Very happy and will grow these again.
