Tomatillo

Physalis philadelphica

Tomatillo Fruits with yellow flowers and green leaves. The fruit is cut into 2 pieces revealing the flesh. Also the pods are shown on the front right of the picutre

These versatile fruits can be harvested at different stages of ripeness to take advantage of a range of flavours. For a sweeter flavour leave on the bush until fully ripe. For salsa harvest early when the fruit is sour and light in flavour. Like their close relative the Cape Gooseberry Tomatillos are high in pectin making them ideal for preserving in jam and chutney. They can also be dried to enhance the sweetness of the fruit. Prefer a frost free, sunny position in well drained soil.
Other Names: husk tomato, mexican groundcherry, miltomate, Mexican husk tomato
