Hudson Valley Seed Co. Purple Tomatillo
Purple hued beauties.
Tomatillos are a force of a nature. They grow like weeds into lush plants the size of small trees and yield huge quantities of fruit that, in the rights hands, can be turned into spectacularly delicious sauces and salsas. They self-sow readily, tolerate too much water and too little, and attract the eye with their shiny leaves and ornament-like husked fruit. The purple hue of this variety makes for a show-stopping salsa. Overloaded with fruit? Remove the husks, place in zippered plastic bags, and store in the fridge--they'll last several weeks.
