Cultivation for Tomatillo is similar to that of tomatoes. Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost in very warm soil (80-90F), kept just moist. Once germinated, allow soil to dry slightly but don't allow the plant to wilt. After true leaves begin to develop, continue growth in moderate temps (60-70), to slow growth. Transplant outside after frost and when soil and night time temps begin to warm. Space about 18-24 inches apart.
