60 days. A Polish twist on an old Mexican staple vegetable! Immature fruits are green, morphing to pretty yellow as they ripen and begin to split their protective husks. The fruit is firm, juicy and very sweet, perfect for jams, jellies and don’t forget the salsa! We also love these in the garden for fresh snacking and salads. Bred to thrive in the cooler summer conditions of inland eastern Europe.

What are the pros? Lots of fruit

What are the cons? Hard to keep tame

Review:

I tried this variety because it was different. Glad I did! It grows like it has a turbo charged engine. Strong plant went through unusual cold/hot weather. Lots of plump fruit, that taste of star fruit and green apple. You really only need one plant, hundreds if lanterns appear mid July. I trellised mine on livestock fencing. Using zip ties to secure limbs.

What are the pros? Taste and size

What are the cons? Wish I Knew about them earlier

Review:

For me tomatoes grow like weeds and these seeds were no different. Started a batch and ended up with a batch. I start seeds out in a temporary greenhouse. Then grow them in pots- I happened to keep this one in a 2 gallon pot all year in Wisconsin. It took until July to see the fruits and harvest the first batch. Some of my fruit had purple shoulders at the end of harvest or if I left them on the vines to long. I picked them just as the paper cracked. Mom said the best thing she has ever tasted from a garden. I coudn't keep her hands off of them so I just gave her the plant. The plant was still producing loads of fruit in a 2 gallon pot until frost in October. This will definately be a standard in my garden line up. Even though the fruit was firm, my mother said the burst of fruit taste when you bit into it was something to die for.

Review:

I love tomatoes, tomatillos, ground cherries...all of them but this one was annoying. It wasn't hot or sweet or juicy or tomatoey. It just didn't make it.

What are the pros? heat-tolerant; early; size

What are the cons? not drought-tolerant

Review:

This is an awesome tomatillo. It can set fruit in extreme heat. However, if you forget to water it, you'll probably notice, if you live in a dry climate like mine. It wilts a lot when it's thirsty (unlike Purple de Milpa; however, Purple de Milpa doesn't set fruit in extreme heat). These were yellow with purple shoulders. Perhaps they had purple shoulders because they were growing next to Purple de Milpa tomatillos. I plan to grow them (from the same seed packet) next year without growing Purple … to see if they still have purple shoulders. I didn't water them as much as I should have, and they died early (probably because of that). So, I harvested my fruits before they were fully ripe. They tasted like sour watermelon. I'm curious to see if they'll taste the same next year, and when they're actually ripe. Other tomatillos taste completely different. The fruit size wasn't tiny. I was happy about that. If these are like tomatoes, reseeded ones should tolerate drought.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, quick maturing

What are the cons? None.

Review:

I tried this tomatillo after finding other varieties wouldn't mature quick enough and give much fruit in the short season of Ontario. It grew easily from seed with no pest problems. It bore prolifically and early, already in July. Attractive to bees too, they were always on the flowers.
