Tomatillo Queen of Malinalco seeds (Phylasis ixocarpa)

Price for Package of 10 seeds. 

An old and very rare variety from the town of Malinalco in southwestern Mexico. The tomatillo is also known as Mexican husk tomato. It is not a tomato like a name suggests, but it is closely related to the pineapple cherry. Like other Tomatillos, the plant has a bushy habit and height of 180 - 200 cm.

The fruits of the tomatillo are surrounded by a thin Chinese lantern-shaped membrane. This membrane starts out green and turns brown, almost transparent when the fruits are ripe. These fruits ripen from green to light yellow. This tomatillo is larger and sweeter than other tomatillo varieties. 

The taste is an exotic combination of sweet and sour. The shape of this Queen of Malinalco is round and elongated to tapered. The flesh is nice and sweet and juicy. Tomatillos can be used in salads, salsas, and exotic fruit desserts and are also made into compotes.

Furthermore, chili sauce (Salsa Verde) is made with tomatillos and chilies. Give this plant firm support. Harvesting is possible from August when the lantern becomes translucent and the berry turns yellow. Ripe fruits fall off the plant regularly. Nonhardy annual. 

Sowing in March, transplanting from April at stable temperatures. Ready in a little over two months after transplantation, they are large in size. In particular, this variety is among the sweetest of the species, with an exceptional citrus aftertaste.

The number of seeds in the package and grams?

Note that wherever the number of seeds is indicated in grams, there may be more or fewer seeds in the package because the seeds are not the same size and weight.

If indicated in grams, the number of seeds loses relevance and is only there to show the approximate number of seeds in the package.

For example "Price for pack of 50 (1g) seeds." so you are not buying the number of seeds but the weight.
