Very productive! Dr. Wyche’s Yellow Tomatillo (Physalis ixocarpa) is truly unique with its bright yellow and purple tinged fruits. Tart, citrus flavored globes — 1 1/2 inches wide — are an integral part of green salsas, both cooked and not. (90-100 days from transplant) CERTIFIED ORGANIC
Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Similar to tomatoes, start indoors and transplant to the garden after the last frost. Choose a sunny location and provide plants plenty of room by spacing two feet apart in rows separated by five feet. Mulch well to conserve moisture and keep down weeds.
Harvest when the paper husks start to yellow and are loose and crinkly around the fruit. Kept in their husks in a brown paper bag, fruits will last a month or more — often until Thanksgiving — in the refrigerator.
