Plant: After last frost

Solanum sisymbriifolium

50 seeds/pack | Heirloom

While Litchis are in the tomato family, they are not really tomatoes. They bear small red fruits that have a sweet cherry taste and are slightly crunchy due to seed content. They can be used to make fruit tarts, preserves, sorbets or wine. The 5-foot-tall bushy plants are attractive with neon orange THORNS. Plant a hedge as a natural fence.

Physalis ixocarpa

50 seeds/pack  |  70-90 days

Purple variety with fruits 1-2 inches. Tangy flavor great in green salsas. Purple color indicates maturity. With time, they become more seedy but sweeter for eating raw. Prolific. We plant this from seed directly in garden soil June 1 and still get a great yield.

Physalis ixocarpa

50 seeds/pack   |   60-80 days

These classic green tomatillos are borne on sprawling plants that produce vast amounts of green fruits covered in papery husks. They have a unique sweet and tangy flavor. Use the fruits in green salsas combined with onions, garlic, etc. Be aware, these plants have a reputation of volunteering for years after the original planting. Personally, we think that is a great thing! Adapted to grow in a wide range of climates but will handle a lot more heat than tomatoes.
