I was given these seeds from a friend and was pleasantly surprised to find them producing purple fruit. The color was different, bright, and fun but the flavor was outstanding! So much better than the regular tomatillos I'm used to. These are definitely a new staple in my garden!
They had great flavor and a huge yield, but only two tomatillos turned purple out of all the ones that grew on four plants. I even let them stay on longer but then they would turn white and fall off. We will probably try them again because we really like the flavor, just a little disappointed we didn't get some fun color for the kids.
These plants produce a lovely purple fruit which deepens and sweetens when ripe. The fruits make a lovely purple salsa. Be sure to plant at least 2 for pollination and for plenty of fruit. I will be planting more next year!
