Organic Toma Verde Tomatillo
Organic Toma Verde Tomatillos are so abundant, so disease-resistant, so delicious! 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.
We’ve been saving our tomatillos for nearly a decade, selecting for early maturity as well as sheer abundance, never tiring of salsa verde in a thousand variations. 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 stuffed in roast chicken. Have fun, let us know what you discover and don’t forget to trellis early and often!

I grew these tomatillos in 2021 – first time growing tomatillos! Used a grow light (low-tech – a long florescent bulb on a wood stand) and a heat mat, germinating them at about same time and temperature as my tomatoes. As I am not an expert gardener, to my great amazement they not only germinated but grew into plants! Ended up with four plants that kept me in tomatillos for the entire season; had to give a bunch away because the harvest was incredible and just kept coming. In heavier clay soil, the plants only got about 3 ft high but still produced like crazy. In less clay-based soil, plants got to about 6-7′ in height, needed to be staked/supported; fruit output was similar to ‘short’ plants. Planting them again this season, but this time probably aiming for only 2 plants, so I’m not overrun with tomatillos! Great product! If I can grow it from seed and end up with a harvest, almost anyone can!
