Description

Super Verde Tomatillo is a hybrid variety with an earlier maturity date compared to other varieties. It has a semi-determinate growing habit which will be a bit bushier and less tall than other tomatillo varieties. This variety produces medium to large-sized tomatillos which have a sweet, almost citrusy flavor. These are a staple of many Latin dishes and the main ingredient in truly authentic salsa verde. They’re also very nutritious — high in Vitamin C and antioxidants. To make delicious salsa verde, simply boil the tomatillos until tender, blend, and add onions, peppers, lime, and cilantro.

Tomatillos are in the nightshade family along with tomatoes, peppers and eggplant. We recommend growing them from transplants in our 162 Cell Seed Starting Trays. Transplants will usually take 5-6 weeks to establish a solid root ball before they’re ready to go in the ground. Tomatillos should be transplants when risk of frost has passed in spring, typically 1-2 weeks after tomatoes, transplants are planted. For pollination and fruit set to occur, at least two plants must be planted beside one another.

Tomatillo plants can produce quite a bit of foliage and fruits. As a result, they will require some type of trellising or support. We recommend growing them inside our heavy-duty Tomato Cages for best results. If growing long rows of them, you can also support them with stakes and twine using the Florida Weave technique. Fruits ripen early and should be harvested when the husk begins to split and the fruits fill the husk. Leave fruits in the husk until you’re ready to cut and prepare the fruits. Fruits will usually store 2-4 weeks in the refrigerator after harvesting.
