It reminds me of a determinate tomato -- it seemed to produce a lot of blossoms all at once (and I wonder if they'll open all at once); the tall tomatillos seem to produce and open their blossoms over time.
If it's like mine, then the little one produces all the fruit and the big ones do all the pollinating, but little to no fruit.
