How to Grow Purple 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.
