|Tomatillo growing on plant|
A tomatillo plant looks a lot like a tomato plant and requires the same conditions, primarily lots of sun and good drainage. The fruit is small, round, and green and it grows in a papery husk. You know when it's time to harvest when the fruit has filled out the husk and the husk is straw colored. When you peel the husk off, the tomatillo skin will feel sticky--just give it a good rinse and you're ready to start chopping.
