Tomatillos bear prolifically and are know for being tolerant extreme conditions from dry farming to even cool nights. Tomatillos grow encased in a papery shell very similar looking to a Chinese Lantern (flower). The papery shell turns from green to brown and splits when they are ready. At this point they may feel sticky but are ready in the green stage for salsa. If you leave them they will turn to a yellow.

This variety of tomatillo can bear 2-4 oz. fruits. Tomatillos normally produce about a 1 pound of fruit per plant. So plant accordingly. Just imagine the surprise when you give a jar of Salsa Verde to your friends for Christmas!
