Tomatillos are a tomato-like plant, sometimes called the Mexican Tomato, which produce a green fruit used to make Salsa Verde. Mmmm…Salsa Verde.
The fruit grow within a paper husk called the calyx. When the calyx dries up, the fruit is ready to be picked.
This is the first year that I have grown tomatillos, and so far everything is looking good. They seem to be very hardy and robust.
I’m hoping for ample pollination of my eight plants and I’m hoping for enough fruit to make several jars of fresh salsa.
