DIG THIS! about Tomatillo:
Tomatillo is a self-incompatible plant, almost always requiring 2 plants to produce fruit. Only the fruits are edible on the plant, other parts can be toxic! The tomatillo dates back to pre-Columbian times and is native to Mexico. The tight-fitting husk will turn light brown when they are ready to harvest. Use in all green sauces, cut up on tacos and other dishes, or roast and peel for a different taste. Wash your hands with soap and water after removing the husks.
