70 days. An electric violet color and sweet fruity flavor make this the most exciting tomatillo we have seen. Plants are prolific covered in large glowing orbs that are mostly purple with just a few partially green fruit in the mix (it should be noted that more sunshine will produce a more pure purple fruit.) Many are a bright violet color throughout their flesh. Much sweeter than the green types, it can be eaten right off the plant. We love this nutrient-rich fruit for making sweet and spicy salsas and for experimenting in our heirloom kitchen!
