Tomatillo

Tomatoes that come in their own chinese lanterns

Part of the James Wong Homegrown Revolution Range.
Vigorous, high yielding plants. Perfect in salsas, sauces and guacamoles. Very similar to its relative, the tomato, but even easier to grow. Harvest fruit at any size larger than a walnut, whilst still green. Tastes like: tomato & lime. Latin Name: Physalis philadelphica.


Sealed inside their own little paper envelopes, these round, green tomato-like fruit were once actually more popular than tomatoes themselves amongst the Aztecs of their native Mexico. They are freshingly fruity and taste weirdly like a cross between a lime and beefsteak tomato.

Far easier to grow and immeasurably more productive than a lowly tomato, there is no excuse why every fajita fan shouldn’t make space for a couple of these too! Sow: March-April. Harvest: August-October.
