Queen of Malinalco
(Physalis ixocarpa) 70 days. A unique and delicious heirloom treasure from the mystical town of Malinalco, in the southwest of Mexico. Botanical Explorer Joe Simcox searched high and low for the fabled “queen of Malinalco” tomatillo, revered for its extra large fruit that have a sweet, almost fruity flavor. The unbelievably beautiful fruit is completely sheathed in papery husks like other Physalis species. The fruit grows up to 4 inches long, and the plants are very productive. The fruit is used to make salsas; it can also be cooked up like tomatoes or simply eaten fresh. This is a stunning rare find from Joe and his team, and we are delighted to be able to offer this great rarity!
