Review:

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.

Review:

Last year I grew 2 plants each of the purple and green varieties. Like another reviewer I found that all the fruit turned green. While the plants were all quite prolific and quickly took over the garden space they were allotted (and then some), the fruit never grew bigger than about cherry-sized. I suspect it was due to the dry summer combined with being in raised beds. This year, the entire 4'x8' raised bed and almost two feet around it was full of seedlings. I gave away several plants and am excited at how much hardier this year's plants are. Fruit is just showing up, so I don't know how large they will grow, but it looks pretty promising.

Review:

I planted these in Argentina this year. You can´t stop these things from producing. They will truly surprise you.They are so delicious. I recommend picking them a little early while they still have some tart, lemony taste. At full ripeness, they are surprisingly much more sweet.They grew tall and wide and full of fruits! I´m still harvesting them in late summer / early fall ...and there doesn´t seem to be any end in sight!Yanqui Mike Buenos Aires letters@yanquimike.com.ar

Review:

These tomatillo plants produced so many that I was giving them away after I had canned and frozen all I had room for. Made fabulous salsa we use for chips and in chili verde. Also, as a bonus, they came up as volunteers the next year and filled my freezer again. Gotta love that!

Review:

I live in Northern western WA where our summers can be very mild. Even in a very cool season these have always produced a lot of fruit until frost. I have noticed you cannot put the purple ones and the green ones near each other because the purple turns green. These are fantastic in salsa, posoles (soup), and all kinds of dishes. I only eat them cooked as they are too hard to eat when they are raw. Peel the wrapper and wash, then store in the freezer for later, they are just as good! I recommend these to all market growers despite their skepticism. They self sow for me often, and i sell the extra the seedlings in the neighborhood very quick!
