tomatillo on vineThe Basics

In the tomato family, tomatillos are the bright green cousins. They come in a papery husk that they fill and often split open when ripe and ready to use. If you pick your own, wait to pick until the husk is tight around the fruit and splitting at the bottom.

Cooking Tips

These tangy fruits are perfect salsa ingredients, and are the primary ingredient in salsa verde with jalapenos. Roasting tomatillos brings out their sweetness and adds a great depth of flavor.

Tomatillos are available for members to pick their own at our farm locations.
