Tomatillos have a tangy flavour and are widely used in Mexican cookery. Eat raw, or they are lovely grilled.
Sow under glass and transplant after last frost. Plants will do better under cover in cooler areas of the country. Space 70-80cm apart. Grow at least 2 plants to ensure pollination. Plants grow to 1.5m so may need support but they can also happily be left to sprawl! No need to pinch out side shoots. Harvest August/September.
