Mexican strain Tomatillo This is the seed to have if you want to do Salsa Verde. Green tomatoes don't work well as they tend to make a muddy colored salsa. These are the husk tomatoes that are used. They are always green or yellow-green. (there is a purple variety too) Pick when the husk is paper brown and the fruit is breaking out of the husk. When the fruit is more yellow, it has a plum - like flavor, when more green, it has a lemony flavor. Mexicans prefer the more green for salsa verde as they are firmer and have a bit of a bite. The over-ripe yellow fruit is good for eatting out of hand or in a compote or jam as it is sweeter. Also makes a good sauce for over fish because of the lemon flavor. Similar to ground cherries but much larger. Semi wild. I have 4 varieties of tomatillos. This one is the earliest, but the smallest of my varieties.

All packs of tomato seeds are weighed to 0.1 gm and contain aprox. 25 - 40 seeds, about double a store pack.

Get your seeds EARLY. Tomatoes need to be started 4-6 weeks before you want to plant them out.

I DO save ALL my tomato varieties myself. This is the same seed that I use for my market garden business. In the spring we sell plants for at least 300 varieties of tomatoes at the Farmer's Markets. We also plant out a good selection of the varieties for fresh tomatoes later at the markets. All my varieties have some specific great trait or 2 that makes them good varieties to grow.

I will combine S&H on any order. So please check out my other listings to see what else you might like.

I ship primarily to USA and Canada. I have sent some seeds to UK. If you know there is no problem importing "seeds" to your country, I will send them at your risk of losing them at customs.

I do NOT have the ability to get a "phytosanitary certificate" if your country requires it. Email me for S&H cost.
