Product information "Tomatillo 'Aurora'"

Tomatillo 'Aurora' is a productive and very early ripening variety. The up to mandarin-sized fruits are already ripe starting in June and they can be used very diversely – how about, for example, homemade salsa?
Planting out should take place after the last frosts in May. Both container plantings (with a volume of at least 10 L) and outdoor cultivation are possible; supporting the plant is helpful, but not essential.
Starting in June.
The tomatillos are yellow when ripe, about mandarin-sized and sweet. They can be processed into sauces, fried or even eaten raw like fruit. Their taste is reminiscent of cape gooseberries, apples and potatoes. Tomatillos are a classic main ingredient of salsa in addition to chilies.
  • Available May, June
  • Lubera Easy Tip Based on our experience in the variety tests but also in customer service, we have awarded this plant with the title “Lubera Easy Tip”. With this designation, we emphasise only those plants that according to our experience work (almost) everywhere; they are easy to grow and bear fruits or produce flowers quickly and without problems. These are plants that can be enjoyed immediately and without effort once planted.

Overwintering Tomatillo (Lily)

Hello, As we near winter I have two well established plants growing in one pot in the UK. I do not have a greenhouse, but can bring the pot close to the wall. Is it possible to overwinter? How would you advise this? Do you cut back the plant or do you leave it as it is and wrap with fleece? Best wishes, Lily

Self-fertile variety? (Heidi Pintschovius)

Hello, I try to cram as many different varieties in this year,, to try some new things. Can I grow a single tomatillos, or do I Ned a neighbour for pollination? Would a Cape gooseberry do for pollination? Probably not... Thank you for your information. You can reply in Germany, if that is easier, as I'm German myself. Kind regards, Heidi Pintschovius

Self-fertile variety? (Lubera)

Hi Heidi, tomatillos need an other plant beside. Since all tomatillos (also of the same variety) are seedlings and have some differences, they can pollinate each other. That means you have to plant at least two plants. Again, this is not necessary with cape gosseberries and tomatoes. Best Regards your Lubera-Team.
