Impressive yield and fruit size for a semi-early tomatillo. Strong, vigorous plant develops a thick trunk to bear the fruit load. Round to apple-shaped fruit. Similar to Super Verde in size and yield, but produces rounder, more uniform fruits earlier and has a more open plant habit. Fruits are about twice the size of Toma Verde. 60 days.

Care: Plant 3-4′ apart in rows 3-4′ apart in full sun. Fruits are ripe when the papery husk turns light brown and splits open, and will store up to 3 months in the husk. A lone tomatillo may grow and bloom but set little fruit; for abundant harvests, grow two or more tomatillo plants near each other to encourage cross-pollination.
