Purple Coban Tomatillo (Physalis ixocarpa)
An exotic, Guatemalan variety, these zesty little gems are just 1” in diameter at maturity. With a bright and citrusy flavor, Purple Coban is terrific for charring, stewing, or enjoying freshly chopped in salsas and relishes. Fruit evolves from light green to purply-green at maturity.
