I managed to brake my largest plant. The stalks are so brittle. I put the top in damp soil and it perked up after two days, I think it rooted.

I have two small plants (I did not germinate more). They have three and four first tickets. I put one in the hotbed and the other I have at home outside the window. I hope that I will raise both plants and that they will bloom and be able to do some pollination. I need seeds for next year.

Vladimir, do you need to use one plant to pollinate the other? Or are they the same variety?

I start from what Arnorrian wrote earlier: because tomatillo is not self-fertilizing, and needs to grow in a group to be fruitful.

I finally got mine out. 3 plants of QoM and 4 plants of Purple tomatillo, planted in four 20 liter (5 galon) buckets. Buried about 10 cm (4 inches) of stem.

Sorry to hear about that. Something I've been using on tomatillos, since I found out about it in hydroponics, is adding some silica, when watering. This helps strengthen stalks, and I was always having trouble with tomatillos, until I started using this. Only a very small amount is needed - a pint of solution lasts me a few years, as only 2 ml is added to a gal.

Hello, if I think I will have fruit soon, if someone knows how to eat this fruit or a recipe to cook, I would be very grateful, I am a great lover of spicy Mexican cuisine.

I think I would try a simple salsa to highlight the fruit flavor. Maybe start with this one for green tomatillo salsa...

It seems that the fruit is forming, they are super huge plants, I think the pot was too small

Hello everyone.
Today I have collected some fruits of queen of malianco, the wrapper turns yellow and the fruit falls off the plant, the fruit has very few seeds, in some fruits one seed or none in many cases, I have raw tasted and I loved it, it is sweet and fresh. The plant is like a big tree, it needs a lot of water and a lot of soil, my fault was having them in pots, I have them in very large pots, but it was not enough. I am going to try to germinate again and plant them directly in the soil of my garden so that they have enough space to develop, I hope they give me time and they acclimatize well to the hot temperatures of summer in Spain.
