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

Review:

I grew these using the winter sowing method zone 5b, and they did great! Very large plant definately should be staked! The fruits were very large and I am getting lots and lots! I already canned a double batch of tomatillo salsa and I only just began to harvest them! Definately will grow again!!!

What are the pros? Unbelievable production!

What are the cons? Much large than anticipated

Review:

I started it in the house to accommodate the longer growing season. The 2 plants I put in the garden are huge with so many fruit it's amazing! While many of my plants were overwhelmed with bugs this year, these escaped the murauders. Very pleased with my many batches of salsa. I would definitely grow this again but I would give it twice the space and support!

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? needs strong support

Review:

"medium sized plants need no staking" - not true! even in small 1- and 3-gallon grow bags these grew to 5 feet tall and wide, covered in hundreds of flowers. wire cages were not enough, i should have planned for something the size of an indeterminate tomato.

Review:

I live in the thumb of Michigan and thought that I would struggle to grow tomatillos but I could not have been more wrong. For the past two years I have planted these little gems and they have produced bags of fruit. I planted each year only one row ( maybe 10 plants ) of tomatillos and they have produced starting in July all the way into October. Literally you will find hundreds of paper husks hanging on your plants overnight and within days you can watch those husks fill in with the fruit. The second thing I noticed about these plants is that they attract loads of bumblebees who help to pollinate them for maximum output. I have had so much fruit produced from just 10 plants that I have had to send grocery bags full to work with my husband. 10 plants easily supplied well over 200 pounds of fruit for one season. The third thing I noticed is that the plants will root if their branches touch the ground ( they tend to sprawl ). Very, very easy to grow.
