Purple tomatillos are uniquely beautiful and fairly uncommon. They’re small and round like a golf ball, with an average diameter of one or two inches at maturity. Like all tomatillos, the Purple tomatillo is encased in a papery husk, which turns from green to brown and splits open as the fruit matures. The fruit itself starts out pale green and ripens to a deep violet color, and that rich purple skin coloring bleeds into its bright green interior flesh. Purple tomatillos have a tangy-sweet taste, much sweeter than their green counterparts, with citrus-like hints and sub-acid flavors of plum and pear. The semi-determinate, heavily branched plants have dark green leaves with striking purple veins, grow to an average of just three feet, and produce high yields of this exceptional fruit. 


Purple tomatillos, like green varieties, are a very popular fruit in Latin America, and are a staple of Mexican and Guatemalan cuisine, particularly for salsas.


Sold in a 2.5" pot.

    Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!


    I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

    Zero out of pocket expense.

    91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

    Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call. His name is James Johns and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

    Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!
