A fruit used in Indian and Mexican cooking, particularly in salsa verde. Although tomatillos are grown like tomatoes, they are easier and more hardy. They grow into 3 meter tall plants and the fruits are ready when the fill out their husk. They keep well after harvesting. Start them indoors early, transplant outdoors after frost danger. The plants should be spaced 2-3' apart. Harvest when paper husk loosens and fruit turns from green to yellow.
