Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Start your journey with the Cherokee Dr. Wyches Yellow Tomatillo by sowing seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks prior to the last expected frost. If you prefer direct sowing, wait until the soil warms up sufficiently. Upon transplanting or when thinning out direct-sown plants, ensure a spacing of 18-24 inches between plants, with rows set 30-36 inches apart. Select a location that gets ample sunlight and has well-draining soil. Regular watering and occasional fertilization will ensure a bountiful and healthy harvest. As the tomatillos develop their characteristic yellow hue, you'll know it's time to harvest and enjoy.
