Purple Tomatillo –
Det. 70+ days. A rare heirloom variety with small oval, 1 oz., 1 to 1-1/2" fruits that ripen from green to purple. Flavor is sweet (sweeter than green tomatillos), yet tart and can be eaten straight from the vine. Makes an attractive purple salsa or try them on the grill. Skins are noticeably less sticky than most tomatillos. Easy-to-grow. Plants are 10" tall and spread 20 to 24".
