Its introduction to modern gardening enthusiasts has sparked interest in heirloom varieties and revived interest in ancient food traditions.

Culinary Uses:
Really Purple Tomatillos offer a delightful sweetness with less acidity compared to green tomatillos, making them perfect for various culinary endeavors. They are traditionally used to make salsa verde, a tangy and flavorful sauce that complements a variety of dishes. Additionally, these tomatillos can be used to make sauces, dips, and even jams, adding a vibrant purple hue to the final product. Their smaller size and sweeter flavor make them a versatile ingredient in both savory and sweet recipes.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
These tomatillos are vigorous growers, with plants reaching heights of 4 feet or taller and producing an abundance of fruit. They thrive in full sun and well-drained soil, requiring regular watering to keep the soil consistently moist. Start seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date, then transplant them outdoors once the danger of frost has passed. Space plants approximately 24-36 inches apart to allow for adequate air circulation and growth. Provide support for the plants, such as staking or caging, to support their large size and heavy fruit production. With proper care and maintenance, Really Purple Tomatillos will reward gardeners with a bountiful harvest of uniquely colored and flavorful fruits.
