DESCRIPTION

Largest tomatillo you can grow! 2-4' tall vigorous prostrate vine produces heavy yields of excellent flavored 3 oz apple green tomatillos. Papery husks protect the tomatillos as they ripen and fall from the plants. Heavy re-seeder. Very popular in the Southwest US for making salsa verde or chili verde when combined with fresh hot peppers. Suitable for Home Garden and Market Growers.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.

HEIRLOOM

This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.

DETERMINATE

Determinate types are relatively small and often referred to as bushy or compact. Each short branch ends in a flower cluster and the plant does most of its growing before any fruit are set. The tomatoes tend to ripen at once, usually over a short 2 to 3 week period. After most of the tomatoes are harvested the plant yellows and additional production is limited. If grown upright, the plants are seldom more than 2 - 3 feet tall.
