A great purchase!


These sprawled and produced very well, even in zone 7. Good size and flavor. Will repurchase.

Prolific, rigorous plants which yield beautiful and sweet tomatillos.


Wow-what a strong and rigorous tomatillo varietal. Germinates even faster than tomatoes, grows like wildfire and becomes almost like a branched annual shrub, even in containers. These plants readily root from accidentally broken stems and I harvested dozens of tomatillos. A few plants go a long way-once this plant starts producing, it continues right until frost. Here's a tip-this plant is a heavy feeder, so if you give a dilute feed every other week (same method as you would for tomatoes), the tomatillo fruits will be small and incredibly sweet. I'd bring down tomatillos from the garden, husked them and ate them fresh.
