What are the pros? prolific when healthy
What are the cons? tempermental
I planted 5 of these tomatillo plants next to each other with varied result. (You need more than one plant because they don't self pollinate) First off, around here, there aren't many insects that like these things so when I started getting fruit, they were unblemished. Two plants started turning yellow and the husks started turning pale then brown before the fruit even formed. The other plants took off and I pick ripe tomatillos almost daily. One plant has oval shaped husks and another has husks with purple veins. They are very unique but the fruit is consistently good. I like to pick some as soon as the husks split for a tart flavor and some when the husks turn brown for a sweeter flavor.
