Tomatillo Plants

Growing Tomatillos


Anonymous added on June 5, 2015 | Answered

My neighbor gave me a couple of tomatillo plants a few months ago. The plants are now healthy and growing like crazy; however, the pods open up and turn into flowers. I have not gotten any fruit. What am I doing wrong?

Since you have more than one plant, I would not think this would be an issue, so it is likely an issue with poor pollination. You may need to hand pollinate. Tomatoes and tomatilloes are pollinated in the same way, so this article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/pollinate-tomatoes.htm
