Tomatillo Unity Grown

The defining ingredient of salsa verde, tomatillos are closely related to husk cherries, but this variety can be consumed ripe for a sweet taste, and unripe for a tarter, acidic taste. The Cisineros Grande variety of tomatillos is well regarded for its large fruits (up to 2.5" in diameter) and high productivity.
This tomatillo takes 80-85 days to mature, but green tomatillos may be ready before then.
Relatively tall plants with structure similar to tomato or pepper plants, Cisineros Grande tomatillo plants can reach 3-4' tall with a spread of 2-3' and should be placed in the garden as appropriate for this size.
Plants are available in 4" pots the week of 4/29.
