TOMATILLO (Physalis philadelphica) (80 days)—

25 Seeds per pack

"We are not sure where these came from, but they are your standard tomatillos that are better because the seeds were produced in the Midwest. This plant is amazing to watch grow and finishes with a brilliant purple color when mature. Great for making salsa morado, which is a color variation of salsa verde."-Buffalo Seed Company
