(Physalis ixocarpa) 70 days. 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? Easy to grow, pest resistant

What are the cons? Long maturity time

Review:

I started growing these on a whim a few years ago. The plants get huge and heavy, they've knocked over every cage I've put around them, and they're heavy producers. I haven't had any pest issues with them at all. They like water, and if you plant them directly into the ground they won't germinate until it gets very warm out. The biggest problem I have is the long maturity time. I frequently run out of good weather before the fruit ripens fully. I use these to make salsa.

What are the pros? Good tasting and sweet

What are the cons? late and splitting

Review:

I grew the Purple Coban in 2016 and it was small but tasty. I thought I would try the yellow Amarylla and the purple to go with my green tomatillos. The green and the Amarylla did fantastic. The purple took a long time to ripen and then the fruit split. I am going back to the Purple Coban to sweeten up the salsa verde I make. I now prefer the "green" salsa over the tomato salsa I was used to. Although it really can't be called green salsa as the mix makes it a caramel color. Delicious!!!

What are the pros? very tasty when picked fresh

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was a very prolific tomatillo. The purple-green fruits were very sweet and tasty when picked fresh, unlike green tomatillos. I mixed these with green tomatillos to make salsa verde. They added a very nice sweetness. They are an unusual fruit. It was fun to share these with friends and neighbours.

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:(
