Q.When Tomatillo Fruit Appears
I have a tomatillo plant and it keeps flowering, but when does the fruit appear? The blossoms are yellow, and it looks like after they fall off a tiny husk appears, but then I have been waiting for the little fruit, and it just looks like another blossom is going to bloom.

It usually takes 11-12 weeks for fruit to appear. The papery husk is actually where the fruit is located. The husk is brown and the fruit yellowish when ripe. The condition of the "husk" is a good indication of the freshness of the fruit. The husk should be light brown and fresh looking, not shriveled and dried. Fruit should be firm.
