Botanical name: Physalis philadelphica
Tomatillo is also known as Toma Verde or Ground Cherries. It is a member of the nightshade family, they are closely related to tomatoes. It is grown like a tomato. The plant and leaves look like a tomato plant. That is where the similarity ends. Twenty years ago, most Americans did not even know of Tomatillos, let alone think about growing them. Now, avid gardeners looking for something different to grow, often turn to Tomatillos.
The fruit of the Tomatillo is green, and about the size of a large cherry tomato. The inside is white and meatier than a tomato. Tomatillos grow inside of a thin paper-like husk. They are used in Salsa, jams and other mexican recipes.
Sow Tomatillo seeds indoors six to eight weeks before the last frost. Sprouting tomatillo seeds is more successful when using a heated germination mat. Transplant tomatillo plants into your garden after all chance of frost has past. Plant seedlings 18 - 24 inches apart, in rows three to four feet apart.
