Planting and Care Instructions

Tomatillos like to be planted in well draining soil in full sun. Water 2-3 times a week depending on temperature. A long branch can benefit from additional support, such as a cage, once the plant begins fruiting. Harvest when husk is dried around the fruit. It should be easily plucked from the branches when ready to be picked. Fruits keep for weeks in a bowl.
