Tomatillo: Green (Organic) (Physalis ixocarpa)
$1.00 - $5.60
Though the tomatillo (to-ma-TEE-yo) is distantly related to the tomato and is grown in a similar way, the likeness ends there. Tomatillos originally grew wild in the fields of Central America, and became a common ingredient in local cuisine. These fruits have a tart, distinctive flavor and can be used either raw or cooked. Many traditional Mexican foods such as salsa, guacamole, and gazpacho include tomatillos as a main ingredient.
