(Physalis ixocarpa) Beautiful purple fruit, large size. Many are a bright violet color throughout their flesh. Much sweeter than the green types; it can be eaten right off the plant. Turns purple when ripe; rare!

What are the pros? Abundant fruits

What are the cons? Very wide plants

Review:

Plants are very wide and it's only middle of July, did my best to stake with tomato cages but my 3 plants are spread out between 4-6 feet each 3-4 feet high. Was almost convinced they wouldn't turn purple as other reviewers claimed but just started turning a few weeks ago, you have to wait until husks split and turn yellow, not sure if sun has anything to do with it but they seem to turn purple first where split in husk happens and fruits are exposed to sun. Flowered early but took a few weeks before fruit would set, now that summer has hit I'm about to be overburdened. Would definitely recommend if you have room for them!

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? not what they were supposed to

Review:

My tomatillos were not purple either. I waited and waited til they matured and fell off and never even a smidge of purple. I eat them though and they are tasy but I was really looking forward to the purple variety:(

What are the pros? Green but good

What are the cons? Wrong seed

Review:

I received the wrong seed - I'm fairly confident the whole packet was wrong and not just 1-2 because of the 4 i planted all were green tomatillos. It wasn't until they started falling off the plant that I even realized it was the wrong seed because I kept waiting for them to turn purple. Having said that, though, I loved them. I roasted them and made green salsa which everyone absolutely loves. Don't make the same mistake I made and try to grow them in a 5 gallon container. It's not nearly big enough - I had to water these twice a day on hot days because they were so root bound. Next time they're going in the raised beds.

Review:

We tried a few plants three years ago - started indoors. They produced, but very late, however, what we did get was delicious and fruity. Last year we tried again and they did very well. We ended up with wide plants (used cages to hold them up) they were around 3-4 feet tall. Lots of fruit, but again, probably because our growing season is somewhat short up near the Wisconsin border, we didn't get as much as we would like. This year, however, and maybe because of the El Nino/La Nina effect, they sprouted up on their own this spring and were far taller and stronger than the seedlings I attempted. I transplanted what grew outside instead, and discarded my seedlings. This time, we began getting tomatillos in late August and they are still coming now in mid-October as we approach what will likely be our first frost tonight. Hoping we have as much luck next spring with them shooting up on their own. Lovely fruit for salads, tacos, salsa, quesadilas, and other garnishes.

What are the cons? Nothing dislikes.

Review:

This is a third year I am successfully growing of tomatillo I ordered from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. Actually, I only did a work first year, after that it was self-seeding plant that grows beautiful, abundant and really purple when fully ripe. I am living in Mediterranean climate, summers are very dry and hot, tomatillo seems to like it as it produces a lot by the end of November. I keep them in husk and it is incredible how long it can be preserved. I eat it mostly raw in salsa verde type of recipes, but I made it also cooked, roasted, all great. Wonderful plant that is threatening to overtake my whole garden this year. I will always grow it, maybe will try other varieties.
