Frieda's Specialty Produce - Milpero Tomatillos



What is a Milpero Tomatillo?

  • Milpero Tomatillos are smaller, sweeter, and more flavorful relative of Tomatillos. They look almost like a green cherry tomato with husk.
  • Much like Tomatillos, Milpero Tomatillos are used widely in Latin cuisine and the key ingredient in Salsa Verde.

How to Eat

  • Remove husk and wash thoroughly. Use raw, roasted, or boiled in salsas and sauces.

Health Benefits

  • Excellent source of vitamin C.

How to Choose

  • Choose Milpero Tomatillos that are bright green, firm, and dry.

How to Store

  • Store refrigerated. Husked fruits will also keep longer.  Chopped up or cooked fruits can also be frozen for later use.
