Tomatillo Plants


Anonymous added on October 30, 2017 | Answered

Can you pick smaller fruits and will they ripen inside the house like a tomato? I picked all the fruits due to danger of frost and are they ok to eat if not fully grown? Thanks.

Yes, they are safe to eat. Slightly unripe, green tomatillos are preferred for Mexican salsa verde, since they have a more tangy flavor. Very unripe ones may not be tasty but they may ripen further if you place them in a paper bag for a few days.
