Tomatillo Seeds
Part of the James Wong Homegrown Revolution Range.Vigorous, high yielding plants. Delicious in salsas, marinades and soups. Easy to grow. Tastes like: tomato & lime.Sealed inside their own little paper envelopes, these round, green tomato-like fruit were once actually more popular than tomatoes themselves amongst the Aztecs of their native Mexico. They are freshingly fruity and taste weirdly like a cross between a lime and beefsteak tomato.Far easier to grow and immeasurably more productive than a lowly tomato, there is no excuse why every fajita fan shouldnt make space for a couple of these too! Sow: March-April. Harvest: August-October.. Content 25 seeds

Tomatillos are ready to harvest at any stage between walnut and medium tomato size; when they start to split their lantern-like casings but are still green. Each plant is capable of producing up to an astonishing 10 kilos (22lbs) of fruit per plant before the first frosts!
Tasting something between a lime and a tomato they might not be quite to everyone’s taste but certainly very interesting. If you’re looking for something unusual then this is it!
