An old Mexican heirloom variety. Tomatillo is an annual in temperate locations, and perennial in the tropics. Physalis ixocarpa produces a round, smooth yellow - green fruit resembling a tomato 2 inches (5cm) wide. The fruit is wrapped in the plants own "paper bag" which is called a calyx that protects it from pests. Tomatillo will grow on its own from year to year and can be left alone all year long thanks to its drought tolerance. It is pollinated by bees which will bring life into your garden. Tomatillo plant is poisonous to humans and consumption is not advised.
