How do you know when to harvest Tomatillo?
The tomatillo or husk-tomato produces a great fruit wrapped in a husk. In the case of the larger-fruited types, when the husk is still green and the fruit has not filled the husk, the fruit is not yet ready to harvest.
If you grow the large-fruited type of tomatillo, they are best harvested when the husk has changed color, and the fruit has broken through and turned yellow-green. I have been told tomatillo are best used before the seeds are well developed.
If you have better suggestions on how to determine when to harvest this fruit leave a comment.
