Growing tomatillos for the first time

AmyH | Jul 22, 2014 09:05 AM

I bought a 6-pack of tomatillo plants this year to fill up some extra garden space. I gave my friend 2 and planted 4 myself. Neither of us has grown them before and were both surprised that they made lots of little papery balloons. Can someone tell me if the fruit will eventually grow inside the papery balloons and how long that might take? I read on another thread that you need more than one plant for them to "fruit" but I don't know if, since they came in a 6 pack and were presumably from the same batch of seeds, they are genetically different enough to actually fruit or if the little balloons will be sterile.
