Harvesting Tomatillos

Anonymous added on October 13, 2011 | Answered

End of season, can I still use the tomatillos that have yet to ripen normally? The husks are still green but there is a sizable tomatillo inside. I don't want to just throw them out if they will ripen off the plant.

    Yes, they will ripen off the vine. Simply place them in a brown paper bag for a few days and they will ripen just like tomatoes do.
