Physalis ixocarpa

85 days.   This is by far the largest tomatillo we have ever grown!  These 2.5" fruit make for easy harvest and processing.  Fruits stay green to light yellow when ripe.  We grow these sprawling and productive plants against a trellis to contain them and make harvest easier, but its not absolutely necessary.  

How to grow it:

2-4 w.

6-14 d.





Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before average last frost date. Thin to the strongest plant per pot. Transplant 18-24" apart in full sun, plants transplant better when small, 10-12". Tomatillos are ripe when the husk fully turns brown, or they fall off the plant.  Plant more than one, as they benefit from cross pollination between plants of the same variety.
