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.

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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Took awhile to fully ripen

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!
