83 days. This special selection of Tomatillo yields large, apple-green fruits. The mediumsized, determinate plants need no staking. The globe shaped fruits reach 3-4 ounces, very large for a tomatillo, and the yields are very high. Recommended for fresh market.

Review:

I live in the thumb of Michigan and thought that I would struggle to grow tomatillos but I could not have been more wrong. For the past two years I have planted these little gems and they have produced bags of fruit. I planted each year only one row ( maybe 10 plants ) of tomatillos and they have produced starting in July all the way into October. Literally you will find hundreds of paper husks hanging on your plants overnight and within days you can watch those husks fill in with the fruit. The second thing I noticed about these plants is that they attract loads of bumblebees who help to pollinate them for maximum output. I have had so much fruit produced from just 10 plants that I have had to send grocery bags full to work with my husband. 10 plants easily supplied well over 200 pounds of fruit for one season. The third thing I noticed is that the plants will root if their branches touch the ground ( they tend to sprawl ). Very, very easy to grow.

Review:

We garden in the East of Engand, where the soil is sandy and the weather drier than elsewhere in the UK. These plants did amazingly well in an unheated greenhouse and even when planted in an outside border, after starting off indoors. Not so well in pots. We treated them like tomatoes and the yield has been huge. No problems with pests and diseases. Looking forward to lots of Salsa and chutney

What are the pros? Good sized tomatillos

Review:

I LOVE growing tomatillos. I can them and use throughout fall and winter, and love making fresh salsa during the summer. These tomatillos did moderately well. Very tall and bushy as I did tie them upright, and they flopped around, drooped, and pulled down their lines, which made it difficult to navigate through and pick. I think I'm going to use a heavy gage fencing to tie them up with next season. They set blooms left and right and produced a ton of small fruit, smaller than I expected. Mulched my entire garden heavily with fresh oak chips as I'm in droughtastic California, only having to water 1-2 days per week. I've grown tomatillos before and have had more than I know what to do with. These just did okay. Flavor is good but they're small. I had enough to eat fresh, can, and to feed the local rat population... ew.

Review:

I never knew it was so easy to grow tomatillos. I love making Mexican food, and tomatillos are an essential ingredient in so many salsas. I would always buy them at the store. When I saw that I could grow them here, I decided to give them a try. I literally did not have to do anything. The plant grew like crazy, and I was overjoyed when I started to see the classic lantern shade husks appear. I will definitely be planting more of these this year.

Review:

I grew about 7 of these plants in 2013 and they turned out great! My soil was not rich enough, so the plants did not reach full potential, but I still had a lot of green tomatillos and they continued production as I harvested.
