Verde Tomatillo starts off tart, but becomes sweeter with maturity. It is an ideal ingredient for Salsa Verde and a tasty addition to any Mexican dish. The large, flat-round green fruits mature early and are ready to pick when the husks split and the color changes from yellow green to medium green.

Start seed indoors 4-6 weeks before average last frost. Provide plants with plenty of light to avoid tall, spindly transplants. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. A few weeks before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Transplant about 2 weeks after your average last frost date. Tomatillo's are ready to harvest when the husk turns from green to tan. Plants will spread out over a large area but can be caged or trellised when space is limited.
