Heirloom. Very easy to grow. This is not a tomato, but is a relative with a very tart, unique flavor that is the key ingredient in salsa verde. Tomatillo is a round, green fruit produced inside a papery husk, which also earns it the name husk tomato. The papery husk is removed before eating. The fruit is used while it is still a green color. If you open the husk and it has begun to turn yellow, it is actually past its prime. A popular Mexican and Southwestern ingredient for sauces and salads. You will need two or more tomatillo plants for the blooms to be pollinated and fruit to be produced..
