Growing Tomatillos in Plettenberg Bay Food Forest

Tomatillos are a small, green Mexican fruit with a Japanese lantern-type shell surrounding it. While they’re from the tomato family, and do look like small, green tomatoes inside the papery covering, tomatillos appear more like cape gooseberries.

After we had huge success with growing cape gooseberries we thought we should give it a try and added seeds of Tomatillos early in September to our Plettenberg Bay urban Food Forest!
