(Physalis ixocarpa) Rare heirloom variety. Dark purple fruits are
smaller (1½-2") and have a sweeter flavor than
green tomatillos. Makes an attractive purple salsa,
also great grilled. Noticeably less sticky than most
tomatillos. 90 days from transplant.
6 weeks before last frost
Green Thumb Tip Culture is very similar to tomatoes. Sow seeds
indoors ¼" deep. Transplant outdoors when soil has
warmed. Plants are self-supporting, but sprawl over
a large area. Cage or trellis when space is limited.
