Physalis ixocarpa

If you love to eat Mexican food, grow tomatillos! Resembling tiny green tomatoes, they have a delightfully citrusy, acidic flavor that's wonderful in salsas for dipping and sauces for cooking, as in chile verde. Grow tomatillos as you would tomatoes. Plant in rich soil after danger of spring frost has passed. Cage or stake plants to keep fruit off the ground. The 2- to 3-inch diameter fruits will develop inside intriguing papery husks.
