De Milpa Tomatillo

(Physalis philadelphica) The ubiquitous sight of the monocrop cornfield we have all grown accustomed to is truly a construct of modern industrial agriculture. The traditional cornfield, or milpa, consists of a loosely intentional and diverse mélange of plants growing in and amongst the maize.  In this system the wild  greens (“quelites”) and vegetables harvested from the cornfield are prized, and often nutritionally as valuable as the corn itself.  Tomatillos are one such plant and this beautiful purple landrace variety comes from that tradition.  Try planting this at the sunny edge of your corn patch, the unruly and sprawling plants appreciate the corn stalks to lean on for a little support and structure. A delicious addition to tomato based salsa or on its own as salsa verde (o “morada”?).
