Growing Tomatillos May 26, 2009

I got my first tomatillo plant this Spring and planted it in one of the small raised garden beds. It got really big and spread out and was covered with flowers, but never a tomatillo. Last month, I took it out of the garden because I needed room for peppers, and stuck in in a big pot. It remained happy and continued to flower but never produced tomatillos. Come to find out, tomatillos need to be pollinated, and thus one was never going to work. I learned this from a friend who also had one non-producing tomatillo plant, and gave her mine. Hopefully, together, they will both bear fruit. I learn something new each day.
