     Purple tomatillos, also known botanically as Physalis philadelphica, are a delightful addition to your garden. Let’s explore how to grow them successfully:


    Best Time to Plant Purple Tomatillo

    As a rule of thumb, begin planting purple tomatillo seeds in spring once all chances of frost have passed.


    Planting Guidelines

    Soil: Use well-drained, sandy loam soil with a pH level around 6.5 to 7.0.

    Spacing: Plant seeds 18" apart in rows, keeping each row approximately 2.5’ apart.

    Sowing Depth: Sow seeds at a depth of about 0.25".

    Thinning: Thin seedlings to one plant every 2 feet to ensure healthy growth.


    Sunlight Requirements

    Purple tomatillos thrive in full sun, ideally receiving at least 6 hours of sunlight daily.



    Keep the soil damp but not soggy or bone dry. Adjust watering if leaves change color or appear droopy.


    Germination and Growth

    Germination typically takes place within a few weeks. Watch your purple tomatillo grow and enjoy the process!


    Harvesting and Uses

    Harvest when the fruits are golf-ball-sized and deep purple.


    Use them to make colorful sauces, salsas, or enjoy them as a snack in the garden
