Description: Tomatillos are small, round fruits, similar to tomatoes, which are popular in Mexican and southwestern cuisines.

They're almost always harvested when green, although as they ripen they can turn yellow, purple or red, depending on the cultivar. But unlike most fruits and vegetables, it's the green, unripe tomatillos that have the most flavour.

The husk starts out green but fades to brown as the fruit matures. In their unripe state, tomatillos have a bright, acidic flavour and a firm texture which lends itself to using in salsas, primarily the classic salsa verde, as well as various soups, stews, stir-frys, curries, chutneys, and dips such as guacamole. Eaten raw, they retain their bright tangy flavour, and when cooked, such as by braising, roasting or grilling, the tanginess mellows and gives way to mild sweetness. When combined with chiles, tomatillos help to mellow out their heat.
