60 days to harvest Indeterminate Physalis philadelphica

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.

    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!
