Growing tomatillos from seed is a fascinating experience that everyone should experience. Tomatillos are small round fruits that grow within a thin papery covering. They somewhat resemble a tomato but are less sweet and more acidic. Tomatillos originated in Mexico and are sometimes called Mexican husk tomatoes. Like tomatoes and peppers, Tomatillos are a member of the nightshade family. Choose between classic green tomatillos seeds or tomatillo seeds that turn purple when ripe fruit. Either way, the tomatillo plant is a fun addition to any garden and adds a unique addition to salsa and other homemade dishes.
NOTE: Unlike peppers, Tomatillo plants are not good at self-pollinating. Plan to plant at least 2 tomatillo plants to ensure pollination and robust harvests.
