Tomatillo, Plaza Latina Giant Green (Organic)
Physalis philadelphica. 80 days.
This special giant Mexican strain produces 3-4” wide, green fruit on super tall plants that benefit from support. Seed originally saved from imported Mexican fruit purchased at the Plaza Latina Market in Eugene, Oregon, in 2005. Much higher culinary value than the smaller yellowish varieties. We like to think of them as the Brandywine of tomatillos. Tomatillos are often called tomates verdes. Always have more than one tomatillo plant in your garden, as they are usually self-sterile.
