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.

    Best tomatillo ever


    Where did you grow this variety? Mountain West US

    This is the most productive tomatillo I’ve ever grown. I have grown it for about 12 years, and it’s a staple for my own use, as well as a Farmers’ Market plant (I don’t sell the fruits). It’s large and early, and productive (a gallon or more per plant!). I would put it down as 65 days rather than 80 – at least for me, but I get much more sun than Oregon.
