When should I harvest tomatillos?
Gardeners should be able to begin harvesting tomatillos 75 to 100 days after transplanting. For best flavor, harvest tomatillos when the husk changes from green to tan while the fruit is still green. The size of the husk and fruit, as well as fruit color and flavor, varies depending on the cultivar. Fully ripe fruit turn yellow or purple and lose their tangy flavor.
