Here’s another variety collected by Jere Gettle on his 2005 trip to Central America and preserved in our seed bank until grown out in 2013! This is a true tomatillo, having the typical husk, but the fruit is smaller, about the diameter of a dime. Fruits ripen to green or purple and are possessed of an unusual savory taste—somewhat different from other tomatillos we sell.

What are the pros? Germination

What are the cons? fruit development in my graden

Review:

I had no luck with these tomatillos. I have grow other tomatillos in the past and was drawn to these because of the color and catalog description. I was able to grow the plants but the plant did not develop tomatillos this last year. I will try again this year but am only planting a couple plants because I do not want to lose valueable garden space to a plant that may not set fruit again. Disappointed with this one. I am aware however that not all plants work in all climates and this does not mean it is a bad plant it just may not be fit for my garden. I would not discorage anyone from growing this seed because I had bad luck. Growing new foods is always an experiment and always worth doing. It is part of the fun of gardening!

What are the cons? Germination

Review:

Sadly, not a single one of these seeds germinated. I started them indoors alongside purple tomatillos and other goodies purchased from Baker Creek. All the others sprouted, but not a single one of these little guys did...

Review:

We started from seed, and the results so far have been amazing. After transplanting, this lady had a tremendous growth spurt ! It outgrew the cage in three weeks !! Though it's late in the season (August) and we don't have any tomatillos yet, the plant is healthy, vigorous and producing flowers. We'll be planting this tomatillo every summer...it's just THAT stunning and worth the wait.

Review:

FIRST OFF - I did not grow these from seed last year so this is not a review on starting from seeds. I got this plant at a local nursery thinking they were the standard larger green tomatillos. So at first I thought they were not maturing at all and threw some out. But I took a few to a nearby Mexican food store and they owner told me these are highly prized, hard to find in stores, and expensive. Unlike the green variety, they are no where near as astringent and sour and do not need to be simmered to use. Wonderful fresh in salsas and salads, or a quick stir-fry or tossed into fajitas. The plant itself grows just like a tomato vine and produced 100's of tomatillos over several months. The good news is that they store in the refrigerator (keep in the husks) for a couple of months just fine. I'm holding off buying the seeds only to see if I can find the plant again - I just don't seem to have much luck with tomato products starting from seed!
