Organic Toma-Verde Tomatillo Seeds
Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Toma-Verde Tomatillo seeds take 60 days to reach maturity. Productive tomatillo plants ripen fruits early. A must-have for salsa and great roasted in Mexican style dishes. Pick when outer husk dries to a light brown colour and fruit is green and firm. Stores well.
Start indoors 4-5 weeks before planting out. Sow seeds .3 cm deep and keep moist until germination occurs. Transplant plants 60-75 cm apart once soil warms up, approximately 2 weeks after it is safe to set them out. Allow plants to sprawl. Fruit ripens continuously until frost.
About Organic Seeds
What are organic seeds? An organic seed is an unaltered seed that comes from a purely raised plant with no genetic modification and that has not been affected by chemical applications or additives. Because organic growers are not permitted to use synthetic pesticides on their plants, the plants naturally become adapted to withstand pests and other natural enemies such as harsh weather. They have to, in order to defend themselves. When organic seed is used, the plants have that intrinsic strength. In other words, the flavour, colour, nutrition, and natural defenses are bred into the seed.
