    Oops. What meant to say is that I've never seen them black, until
    this year when they are in my garden for the first time. Just the
    part that breaks through the paper. Tremendous. Almost sweet.

    Got a black tom, yellow apple, mint salsa coming together in the
    fridge. Some little peppers I wasn't prepared for. Yow.

    Have you ever seen the purple ones? Smaller, very dark, hard to find in
    markets, better flavor than the green ones. However the green ones do get
    black streaks sometimes.

    That's interesting! I was guessing that frost did it.

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    No, not frost yet. I think it is just normal ripening that we don't
    see at the stores.

    Make sure they don't have little worms inside, or a pinhole in the fruit.
    There's a fly of some sort that lays eggs in the tomatillo flowers which
    then form fruit around the egg. The pupae hatches and eats its way out.

    That's the biggest pest they have if you grow your own and until you know to
    watch for it, the little bastards will sneak up on you.
