This rare deep purple form of the classic green tomatillo verde, truly resembling an enormous physalis, and makes a salsa with a difference! The fruits have a little more sweetness than the standard green variety, and the anthocyanins, which give the fruit its purple colouring, are a superb source of antioxidants. The fruits turn purple in patches on the plant but become more uniformly purple if the fruit is exposed to sunlight on a windowsill after harvesting.

Sowing Advice

Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings in pots in the greenhouse. Do not remove side shoots. Some support may be needed.
