Tomatillo , grande, Verde -  this is where SALSA VERDE comes from!. Green salsas are almost always more mild than red salsas. The main difference between regular salsa and salsa verde is that tomatillos are used instead of red tomatoes. Due to the tomatillos, salsa verde has a tangy, zesty flavor with the underlying tastes of hearty roasted green chiles and onions.Tomatillos bear prolifically and are know for being tolerant extreme conditions from dry farming to even cool nights.  Tomatillos grow encased in a papery shell very similar looking to a Chinese Lantern (flower).  The papery shell turns from green to brown and splits when they are ready.This variety of tomatillo can bear 2-4 oz. fruits
