Tomatillo, Cisineros (Organic)
$3.50 – $18.00
Physalis philadelphica. 75 days.
A large, green tomatillo, similar to Plaza Latina Giant Green, but a little earlier to mature and not quite as big. Fruit are 2 1⁄2” wide and a great choice for market farmers and gardeners. Under-ripe fruit are apple-green color and make a nice tart addition to salsas, but we also like the sweetness that comes with yellow-green ripe fruit. Sprawling plants benefit from a trellis, but will crawl around on the ground happily. Always have more than one tomatillo plant in your garden, as they are usually self-sterile.
