Grande Rio Verde Tomatillo
Grande Rio Verde Tomatillo is a staple in Mexican cuisine, bearing large round, green fruit caped in papery green husks. Grande Rio Verde, like all tomatillos, thrives in heat and high temperatures and grows as easily as peppers or tomatoes. It has a unique flavor that is perfect for salsa verde - tart, bright and with notes of citrus. Excellent in salsas, stews, and sauces.

*Fungicide-treated seeds protect the seedlings from diseases until they are up and growing. Do not eat treated seeds.

Planting:Try not to plant seeds until the soil warms in the spring and all danger of frost is past since tomatoes grow best in warm weather. Plant 3-4 seeds in 1/2 inch deep holes on raised beds about 6 inches tall. Space holes 2 feet apart within rows spaced 5 feet apart. When the plants reach 4-5 inches tall, thin them to 1 plant every 2 feet. Water the plants after planting.
