(Physalis ixocarpa) Beautiful purple fruit, large size. Many are a bright violet color throughout their flesh. Much sweeter than the green types; it can be eaten right off the plant. Turns purple when ripe; rare!

Review:

We tried a few plants three years ago - started indoors. They produced, but very late, however, what we did get was delicious and fruity. Last year we tried again and they did very well. We ended up with wide plants (used cages to hold them up) they were around 3-4 feet tall. Lots of fruit, but again, probably because our growing season is somewhat short up near the Wisconsin border, we didn't get as much as we would like. This year, however, and maybe because of the El Nino/La Nina effect, they sprouted up on their own this spring and were far taller and stronger than the seedlings I attempted. I transplanted what grew outside instead, and discarded my seedlings. This time, we began getting tomatillos in late August and they are still coming now in mid-October as we approach what will likely be our first frost tonight. Hoping we have as much luck next spring with them shooting up on their own. Lovely fruit for salads, tacos, salsa, quesadilas, and other garnishes.

Review:

This is a third year I am successfully growing of tomatillo I ordered from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. Actually, I only did a work first year, after that it was self-seeding plant that grows beautiful, abundant and really purple when fully ripe. I am living in Mediterranean climate, summers are very dry and hot, tomatillo seems to like it as it produces a lot by the end of November. I keep them in husk and it is incredible how long it can be preserved. I eat it mostly raw in salsa verde type of recipes, but I made it also cooked, roasted, all great. Wonderful plant that is threatening to overtake my whole garden this year. I will always grow it, maybe will try other varieties.

Review:

2015 was the first time I had ever heard of a tomatillo. Seeding them was interesting as they came up much quicker than expected. We transplanted them into the ground when they were sturdy enough to tolerate being outside. They grew quickly, but it was almost a month after growing almost 4 ft tall that they began to produce. Four plants produced enough tomatillos to make some delicious salsa and attracted lots of bees to the garden. I look forward to growing and harvesting the purple tomatillo again this year.

Review:

This is the first time we have tried to plant tomatillos. They took longer than I anticipated to grow. (All summer, before ready for harvest) They had wonderful flavor fresh. However, roasting them before use was a world apart. I will roast all of my batches from now on. It was super!! They will ripen if picked green (as before a frost), just leave in husk and wait.

What are the pros? Heavy producer

What are the cons? Stops once it gets cold

Review:

The purple tomatillo was delicious. It was very tangy. The plant took a while to produce, but when it did we couldn't make sauce quick enough, and that was just 2 plants. The one thing I didn't like was how quickly it stopped. Tomatoes and peppers will produce until the frost kills them. The tomatillo died off October once the night temperatures started getting into the 40s.
