Grew tomatillos for the first time this summer. Will definitely grow again. Dead easy to grow, no pinching out etc. Just make sure you grow them in very big pots and stake them with say, four bamboo canes in each corner and tied together with sturdy string. Tomatillos have very big bushy heads with a small stem so they’re prone to flopping over. Make sure you grow at least two plants as they don’t self-pollinate. Superb for attracting bees and hover flies! They can be eaten raw but make the most wonderful salsa - cut in half, roast in a hot oven, then coarsely blitz with chopped onion, lime juice, coriander, chilli, a bit of salt, some garlic (optional) - it’s the best salsa ever!
Great to find these on sale. Tomatillos aren’t well known but the fruit is fabulous fir salsa or pasta sauce
