Rare purple heirloom with an exceptional appearance and taste! Deep violet skin color bleeds into flesh with green centers. Much sweeter than the green types with a musky flavor that is superb when eaten right from the plant. Harvest after the papery husk has split, when fruits are the size of a golf ball and skin has turned a deep purple color. Great grilled on kabobs or in salsas. Semi-determinate.
Soil & Water: Tomatillos love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Soak the soil 4-6″ deep at 7-day intervals. Mulch to preserve moisture. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering.
