Tomatillo


Anonymous added on August 2, 2017 | Answered

Why are my tomatillos so small? I didn't know that I should have planted two until now while researching this problem. The plant has tons of fruit pods but the largest they get is maybe the size of a cherry tomato. Does it need to be fertilized?

Your tomatillos are probably a variety that naturally produces small, cherry tomato-sized fruit inside the husk. If the plant itself is small, it may be a problem with lack of water or the plant may need to be fertilized.
