- Purple Tomatillo
An electric violet color and sweet fruity flavor make this the most exciting tomatillo we have seen. Plants are prolific covered in large glowing orbs that are mostly purple with just a few partially green fruit in the mix (it should be noted that more sunshine will produce a more pure purple fruit.) Many are a bright violet color throughout their flesh. Much sweeter than the green types, it can be eaten right off the plant. We love this nutrient-rich fruit for making sweet and spicy salsas and for experimenting in our heirloom kitchen!
