Tomatillos belong to the tomato family, and are considered a fruit, even though they are mostly used as a vegetable.  This unique fruit is similar to an unripened tomato, but is enclosed in a husk.

The best time to plant your St. Clare heirloom tomatillo seeds is from May to November, when the soil is sufficiently warm, and there is no chance of frost.  Since tomatillo seeds need cross-pollination, make sure you have at least two plants.  Place your tomatillo seeds in well-drained slightly acidic soil, with limited water and no fertilizer.  Be warned, the tomatillo plant is quite prolific and will produce an abundant harvest!

Tomatillos are generally eaten when they are green and more firm, and mostly used in salsas and sauces,  as they have a tart, slightly acidic taste. When the tomatillo husks just  begin to split, your tarty fruit is ready to be picked.  Tomatillos are perfect to blend with onions, cilantro, chili peppers and garlic, and are used in salsa to enrich the flavor.  Adding chopped tomatillos to guacamole or soup will give it an extra zest!

This piquant fruit is most popular in Mexico and Latin America, where it was first grown back in 800 BC by the Aztecs. Nutritionally rich in fiber, vitamin C, A, K, niacin, potassium, manganese, and magnesium, this citric tasting fruit is an antioxidant and known to fight cancer and bacteria.  Add St. Clare’s organic heirloom seeds to your garden and add some spice to your life!

St. Clare Heirloom Seeds are proud signers of The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.” ×
