The ones I bought were expertly labelled "tomatillos", no further info given. I'll look for the tan color then. Am going to try staking them with leftover poles and will see how much of the plant will stay off the ground.

The bees do like them when they bloom. I almost killed a large honeybee the other day because i thought from a distance it was a svb moth. It was really interested in the pumpkin, but flew to the tomatillo when I harassed it. I would've lost there, one way or the other.
