How many plants do you have? Here is what I found listed:
. . . and Tomatillos . . .
We would really encourage people to try the tomatillos, which are always
a big success for us. In fact we get so many fruit we don't know what to
do with them all. The plants are productive and easy to grow, the small
fruit in a papery husk are related to the tomato and are used similarly.
Tomatillos are usually used to make fresh salsas (with chilli, onion,
tomato, fresh coriander & nacho chips -mmm!), but you can also add them
to pasta sauces etc.
Please note that if you want to save seed from your tomatillos (which is
very easy to do) you should grow only one variety, as they will cross.
They are not self compatible (i.e. they need to be pollinated by pollen
from another plant), so you do need to grow more than one plant to get
20072 'Verde Pueblo' Tomatillo
This tomatillo not only produces lots of large pale yellow-green fruit,
but unusually, has a very mild skin and is nice to eat raw. Thus ideal
for salsas (recipe included), but also makes a rich spaghetti sauce.
Sprawling type. Pale green fruit, good flavour.
