Morado Tomatillo (Purple Tomatillo)
(Physalis philadelphica formerly Physalis ixocarpa)

70 days — Identical to 'Toma Verde' tomatillos in plant structure except for the leaves have purplish veins.  The two to three ounce fruits are harvested while they are still a bit firm but the purple coloring is fairly rich. Remove the thin husk before using or consuming.

Tomatillos are popular in Mexican salsas and picante dishes.  They even make an interesting addition to salads.  Tomatillos are fairly rare in the supermarkets that don't cater to Hispanic customers. Click here for a recipe for traditional salsa verde.

Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
