HEIRLOOM We love these exquisitely unusual tomatillos: Unwrapping each fruit is like unwrapping a gift! Long and narrow, Queen of Malinalco ripens from green to lemon yellow, just like a round tomatillo, and there are so many ways to play with the flavors: Raw or roasted, coarsely chopped or pureed, with garlic and cumin, shallots and cilantro, grilled on kabobs or tossed on tacos. Every year we think we put enough salsa verde in the freezer to enjoy over the winter; every year we wish we wish we had more. Thanks to our friends Michael and Marcia for sharing your love of food, art and organic Queen of Malinalco tomatillo seeds with us across the years!

Queen of Malinalco Tomatillo when fully ripe is fruitier and sweeter than the standard tomatillo species, being sweet enough to eat fresh, but also makes a great salsa addition or salse verde that has fruitier “pineapple and mango-ish” highlights. The largest fruits can also be stuff like a mini pepper. A taller plant than the Toma Verde Tomatillo.
