Tomatillo Verde

Description

Hugely popular in Mexico, this vegetable is part of the tomato family as it is grown in much the same manner.

Tomatillo Verde has an indeterminate branching habit. It can be used in salsas, and salads and gives a much tarter and tangier flavour than a tomato. It is also used in many Mexican recipes such as chicken enchilladas and chilli tacos. They grow to approximately the size of a large cherry tomato and when ripe the paper like husk turns brown and breaks down to reveal the delicious deep green fruits. Fresh, ripe tomatillos will keep in the fridge for about two weeks and will keep even longer if the husks are removed and placed in a sealed bag.

WHERE TO SOW

Sow seeds underglass 0.5cm (1/4in) deep in pots or trays of good seed sowing compost and lightly cover with a sprinkling or vermiculite or compost. Place containers in a propagator at a temperature of 18-21 degrees C. 

WHAT TO DO NEXT

Prick out seedlings, once large enough to handle, into 9cm (3 1/2in) pots. Transplant to the greenhouse border soil, or individual large pots, or 3 plants per growbag when 20cm (8in) high. Can also be planted outdoors once all risk of frost has past. Plants require sideshooting and support for the best yields. Water and feed plants regularly with a high potash feed once the first truss has set.
