(Physalis ixocarpa) The tomatillo that grows wild in Mexican cornfields.
Very small (3/4") purple-tinged fruits borne on 3-4'
tall plants. Fruit typically does not burst through
husk when ripe. Sharp flavor preferred by some
cooks over other tomatillos. 70-90 days from
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.
