Description

The tomatillo (Physalis philadelphica) also known as Mexican husk tomato, tomate or tomatito verde and pronounced [toh-MAH-tee-YO] is a staple of Mexican cuisine and it is believed that the Aztecs have used the fruit since at least 800BC.
Like tomatoes, tomatillos are a member of the nightshade (Solanaceae) family, but are more closely related to the Cape gooseberry and ground cherry with which they share a similar structure. The fruits of tomatillos, Cape gooseberries and ground cherries are all wrapped a papery husk which when removed leaves a fruit with a slight stickiness.
