Tomato: Tomatillo-Grande Rio Verde Planting Instructions:
Start your tomatillo plants indoors and transplant outside after the last frost. You can also direct seed when the temperature is above 75 F. Plant the seeds 1/2 inch deep in full sun and in well-drained, fertile soil. The plants should be spaced 36" apart. Seedlings should emerge within 1 to 2 weeks. The plants will grow as sprawling bushes 2 to 4' tall. If the plants begin to droop or bend, use stakes to prop them up.

Tomato: Tomatillo-Grande Rio Verde Harvesting Instructions:
Tomatillos are ready for harvest when the husks start to turn brown and separate or when the fruit drops from the plant. For the sweetest flavor, let the tomatillo ripen until it drops. If you wait a week before eating the fruit, it may become even sweeter.
