Description

This is our effort to breed a medium-sized purple tomatillo that stores for a very long time off the vine. Shades range from a slight purple blush on green, to deep purple all through the fruit. Purple tomatillos are reputed to keep well already & we are trying to improve on this. A landrace is a variety that has been purposely maintained as a diverse gene pool to help it be more adaptive to harsh conditions. We like this old form of plant breeding, so we are using it to create a modern landrace.
