85 days. This special selection of Tomatillo yields large, apple-green fruit. The medium-sized, determinate plants need no staking. The globe shaped fruit reaches 3-4 ounces, very large for a tomatillo, and the yields are very high. Recommended for fresh market.

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Hard to start in peat pellets

Review:

I had a heck of a time getting these to start in peat pellets. I got so frustrated that I just threw seeds in my garden in LATE spring. Well, that worked, I had tomatillo seedling sprouting everywhere. I just dug them up and transplanted elsewhere. They grew incredibly fast and they DO need to be staked. Mine are reaching almost 4-5 feet tall and they are still growing. They are producing like crazy and because they got a late start, they are ripening along with my peppers. They are a good size, making harvesting and cooking much easier than the smaller variety. Nice tangy, tomatillo taste. Cut little lanterns all over my plants. Highly recommend, but only if you direct sow.

SALSA VERDE

What are the pros? VERY EASY AND PROLIFIC

What are the cons? What's not to like??

Review:

I planted three varieties of Tomatillos with the idea of making various salsas. I like it with pork and with any mexican dish. These beautiful plants grew fast and surprised me how big they were. I got about 30 pounds of these beautiful green tomatillos from four plants, only a few of the yellow variety and none of the purple. I was disappointed because the tomatillos were mature long before the peppers and so I had to use store bought peppers in the salsa. When the peppers matured I had about 15 pounds and they were beautiful too! Next year I will start the peppers earlier and wait a little longer on the tomatillo to see if I can get them to mature around the same time. Strong productive plants and very beautiful flowers.

What are the pros? Pretty fruits

What are the cons? Needs to be hand pollinated

Review:

My plants grew pretty big and do need staking. I'm growing them in containers. So far the yield is very low. Lots of flowers though... I moved them next to my pumpkins and borage, where there are more bees that seem to like going there. I also started hand pollinating. We'll see, but I don't really think my plant is determinate? I live in zone 4b. It's my first year growing this, so it might be that I am a complete newbie. Maybe next year I will try Toma Verde...

What are the pros? vigorous grower

What are the cons? gets tomato wilt

Review:

Unfortunately, this variety did very poorly in my garden at 2200 ft elevation in Northern CA. They were early vigorous growers, but 2 plants out of 6 got a wilt and died. The other 4 were productive, but most of the fruit was not much larger than the standard tomatillo. Going to try different garden location, and am going back to standard Toma Verde.

What are the pros? Tons of fruit

What are the cons? Plants got too big

Review:

I'm growing two of these plants hydroponically and they are doing quite well. The seeds sprouted appox 70 days ago and are covered with fruit. The growth rate is amazing. At 45 days, the plants were 5 feet tall and covered with flowers. These flowers have since turned into fruit but are not ready to harvest yet. I would say, the plants are roughly 7 feet tall and have 100 fruits on each one. Not sure if I will grow these again as the plants are overwhelmingly big. I'm growing in coco, 10 gal containers, watered 3 times per day with appox 1200 ppm of hydro nutrient. If you have the space I'd recommend going these. Fertilize and water heavily and you will get allot of fruit. Also, use strong supports and stake well. I've had several branches break off in the wind because I could not secure the plant properly due to the size.
