Queen of Malianco Tomatillo (Physalis ixocarpa)
Tomatillo Queen of Malianco (Phylasis ixocarpa): heirloom and very rare variety from the city of Malinalco, in the South West of Mexico. Like the other Tomatillos, the plant has a bushy habit, it is rustic and loves heat. The fruits are abundant, lemon-yellow colored, reaching 10cm in length, they are extremely aromatic, a bit like hazelnuts, and are covered with a paper-like "shell" just like the other tomatillos and physalis. Their taste is very sweet, not acidic at all, they can be eaten cooked like tomatoes and reduced in a nice sauce with a fruity flavour. Ready in just over two months from transplantation. This variety in particular is THE SWEETEST OF the species and is very good eaten raw. A New, exotic , fabulous taste.
