Starting Instructions

Tomatillos are very similar to tomatoes. Sow seeds indoors and their ideal germinating temperature is the mid to upper 80's. Give yourself plus or minus 4 weeks before transplanting. These plants germinate quickly and grow rapidly. Also, let some of your fruit drop and leave for the next years crop to grow on it's own.

Planting Instructions

Germination: 7 to 10 days at 75 to 85 F. Plant seeds 1/4 of an inch deep, 24 inches apart with 3 feet between rows.
