Grow a garden filled with Grande Rio Verde Tomatillo fruits, from freshly harvested Physalis ixocarpa seeds. Grande Rio Verde is a staple in many salsa's and Mexican dishes. The fruit will weigh in at around 3 to 4 ounces, making it the largest Tomatillo variety available. Grande Rio Verde Tomatillo plants will reach a mature height of about 24 inches tall and can be planted right with peppers, tomatoes and other common vegetables.


Grande Rio Verde is categorized as an annual Tomatillo variety. This means that the plants will grow quickly, producing flowers, fruits and seeds all within a single growing season. Check out our Tomatillo seed category for additional varieties, including "Ground Cherry" and "Purple."

SOWING THE SEED

For many Northern gardeners, tomatillos are best established indoors, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Start in peat pots, sowing each seed at a depth of 1/16” under topsoil. When the weather is warm & all danger of frost has passed, transplant or direct sow your tomatillo plants outdoors.

GROWING CONDITIONS

Tomatillos will thrive in an area of full sunlight with temperatures of at least 65F or higher. They prefer a rich soil, that is filled with organic matter. Make sure that the sowing medium is also well drained, as this is very important for a healthy root structure. Adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil, can improve your drainage. Water daily with a light moisture setting to avoid drowning the seed.

GERMINATION & GROWTH

Tomatillo seeds typically germinate in roughly 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants themselves grow to a mature height of up to 2 feet tall and can spread 2 feet wide. Grande Rio Verde plants will need a small amount of area to grow and can be spaced about 24 inches apart from one another, in rows spaced 24 inches apart. The medium sized fruits can be harvested in roughly 80 to 85 days.

Grande Rio Verde will be ready for harvesting in roughly 80 to 85 days. The fruits will develop a papery husk, and the fruits will willingly drop to the ground when they are ready to be consumed. Grande Rio Verde fruits can be stored in the fridge, in ziplock bags for a good two weeks, and can also be frozen as well.
