Planting & Care

Planting: In early spring, start indoors about 6 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 50-55°F range. Sow seeds 1/4" deep and 1" apart in containers of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy and very warm (75-80°F). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside. WHen seedlings are 2" tall, transplant into individual 4" pots. Maintain at 70-75°F. Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. Transplant 3' apart into rich soil in full sun once nights stay securely above 55°F.

Growing: Prepare soil well with aged manure or compost. Provide strong stakes or wire cages at planting time, or tomatillos can spread over the ground if you have lots of space; they are vining plants similar to tomato vines. Mulch well to keep fruit clean and conserve moisture; don't overwater once fruits begin to ripen.

Harvest & Use: At first, tomatillo fruits look like little green balloons. As the fruit inside sizes up, they resemble cherry tomatoes surrounded by a papery husk. Pick when plump fruits fill out the husks and begin to break open the calyx, usually at 1 - 1½", but before fruits begin to turn yellow or soften.
