Tomatillos are small green husk tomatoes. These sticky fruits are peeled and then roasted or blended into green salsa or cooked with chiles into a pungent sauce. This plant grows as a small bush and needs quite a bit of room to grow. Growers are now encouraged to plant at least two, to aid pollination.
Plants are $4.00 each.

These solid purple fruits will knock your socks off!
Small green tomatillo from the mountains of Mexico.
This plant produces a much larger green fruit.
This variety comes from the Zuni Indians of northern New Mexico. The fruits are tiny and more flavorful than the large tomatillos.
