Tomatillo 'Verde' Seeds

Grown in 2007, but didn’t do my homework and didn’t realize they need two plants to pollinate properly. Got one tomatillo out of the whole season, despite many many husks and blossoms (HUNDREDS of them).

Will definitely grow again, this time with two plants.

Great at attracting bees as well, I kept it with my tomatoes for this purpose.

If sowing directly, sow at a depth of approx. 0.58 inches (1.5 cm) and aim for a distance of at least 2.47 feet (76.0 cm) between Tomatillo plants.

Tomatillo 'Verde' normally reaches to a mature height of 3.90 feet [imperial: 1.20 metres] so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Remember to water often.

Tomatillo 'Verde' ideally needs a soil ph of 6.0 to 7.0 (acidic to neutral soil), so check your soil acidity regularily.
