Tomatillos are essential to a wide variety of Mexican foods. ‘Grande Rio Verde’ yields ripe fruit nearly all at once on compact plants (about 24″ tall), thus lending themselves to smaller spaces or containers. A shorter harvest window is ideal for canning or freezing your favorite tomatillo-based sauces, or you can simply freeze tomatillos for use later. Tomatillos thrive in growing conditions similar to tomatoes (because they are related) but will handle a lot more heat. Grow two or more plants to ensure good pollination.
This packet yields approximately 80 plants when started indoors.
