How to Grow Pineapple Tomatillos

When to Plant Tomatillo Seeds

You can start tomatillo indoors or go straight to your garden bed.

If starting indoors, plant 4-6 weeks before the last killing frost. Transplanting is best done 1 to 2 weeks after the average date of the last frost for your region.

If starting in your garden bed, wait 1-2 weeks after the last killing frost to plant.

Where to Plant Tomatillo Seeds

If planting directly in your garden, choose area that has plenty of light and well draining soil.

How to Plant Tomatillo Seeds

Planting in a growing tray for indoor start: Fill each spot with soil leaving a quarter inch at the top. Put 2-3 seeds per container then sprinkle soil on top. Keep soil moist but not soaked. Once plants start forming, more water can be applied. Keep in area that allows for plenty of sunlight and rotate regularly.

Directly planting in garden: Plant in rows with 2-3 seeds per section with about 2' separation from next section. Add stakes as needed to keep plants upright.

How to Harvest Tomatillos

Tomatillos produce a papery outer shell when growing. When the tomatillos outer husk begins to crack, you can begin harvesting. Check for mold or disease before harvesting and remove those fruits for compost.

  1. Very tasty

    This really self-seeded the second year. I am so glad I found this on the website. This kind of fruit is very common in my home country but very hard to find I'm US. I really like the flavor, sweeter than tomatillo, a little bit like like pineapple ice cream. It is amazing when you enjoy the creamy or butterscotch flavor in such kind of fruit.

  2. Great plant

    Okay, these really aren't "tomatillos". They are ground cherries but somewhere in the past someone started calling these Pineapple tomatillo & the name stuck. The flower picture is wrong, too. They really have a flower that looks like Aunt Molly's ground cherries.
    But of course anyone who is a ground cherry addict already knows all of this!

    I do like these ground cherries. In fact, I like this type better than the "Cape Gooseberries" (Physalis peruviana). I would recommend this variety to everyone & I will continue to grow this variety for years to come (God willing).

    They don't taste like Pineapple to me. It seems like every one has a different description for it. One comment that is consistent is, "it's hard to describe the flavor" & I agree. I can't compare it to any known flavor. It's not pineapple, nor strawberry. There is a slight hint of butterscotch. I've also discovered that the more I eat these, the more I like them!
