70-90 days. A very rare tomatillo originally offered by Baker Creek and supposedly collected by the Simcoxes in Mexico. Simcox called it the "Queen of Malinalco" but this is not the true name of this landrace. Locally they are called "acorazado or acorazonado" = "heart shaped". This landrace is found in the old Aztec village/town of Malinalco, named after the Aztec goddess Malinalxóchitl . It is said that Huitzlipochtli abandoned his sister Malinalxóchitl because she was practicing evil witchcraft. While she slept, he left her in the middle of the forest. When she woke, she was furious at having been abandoned by her brother. She gathered people loyal to her and marched off to settle in what is now Malinalco. Very productive, 3-6 foot tall plants yield long, pear-heart shaped fruits that begin green and ripen to a golden yellow and push through their husk. The largest tomatillo we have ever seen. Amazingly fruity tasting fruits are excellent in pies, jams, etc.

~30 seed minimum per packet.
