Tomatillo Seeds Physalis philadelphica Purple
Price for Package of 5 seeds.
One of the most popular and reliable tomatillo varieties delivering heavy crops on large determinate vines of rounded berries 1 to 2 inches in diameter enclosed in the thin husk of its extended calyx. The fruit ripens to a yellow colour, and has a delicious, sweet-tart flavour. Unique garden variety that's very popular in Mexican cuisine. Matures 65-75 days from germination.
Sow in spring 1/16 inch deep. Germination takes around 6-14 days at 65-75F.
Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into 3 inch pots. Grow on under cooler conditions and when about 8 inches tall, either plant in their growing position in the greenhouse or gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions and plant out at least 18 inches apart in a warm and sunny spot in moist, fertile well drained soil and keep watered.
Provide support as the plants will naturally ramble.
