The Q&A Archives: Harvesting Tomatillos

Question: How can I tell when my tomatillos are ripe? Do they change color or become soft?

Answer: Harvest your tomatillos when the light-brown papery husk has folded back to reveal the golden berry. Very ripe fruits will begin dropping to the ground. Check your plant frequently--when you see fruits with the husk folded back or you see fallen fruit, it's time to harvest!
