Fresh tomatillos are the main ingredient in salsa verde, bright green fruit the shape of a small tomato, but firmer and tarter. Growing on sprawling vines, the fruit is encased by a paper lantern shaped husk that dries and splits when mature. The plants can be trellised, but are usually left to their own devices in a corner of the garden. For harvesting, it’s helpful to have a small child search the ground for ripe fallen fruit, while you reach overhead to pluck some from the vines.
