Tomatillo Plants


Anonymous added on June 27, 2012 | Answered

I am trying to grow tomatillos for the first time. The plant has flowers all over, but the flower and stem of the flower turn black and fall off. What is the problem?

It sounds like you may have an issue with poor pollination, which can be corrected by encouraging additional pollinators to the area or hand pollinating plants. You can also try adding some phosphorus to the soil (like bone meal) to help encourage flowering.
