83% of 100

70 days. A citrusy yellow color, pointed shape and remarkable, sweet-tart flavor make this tomatillo a versatile culinary element. An heirloom treasure from Malinalco, Mexico, it can be used in both sweet and savory preparations. The fruit grows up to 4 inches long and the flavor is more like a sweet paste tomato mixed with a husk cherry! The fruit is used to make salsas; it can also be cooked up like tomatoes or simply eaten fresh like an apple.
