I have some plants in my pasture that I believe may be some form of tomatillo since they definitely produce fruit that looks like a tomatillo. But, the plants have light purple blossoms with yellow centers. The flowers look like a five sided star and the leave of the plant look almost like an oak leaf. They definitely produce tomatillo like fruit but I don't want to try eating one when they get ripe if they aren't tomatillos. Does anyone know if there is a variety of tomatillo that has purple blossoms in the spring? I live in north Texas about thirty five miles east of Dallas.

I never realized what these plants might be until I saw some tomatillo fruit in a grocery store.
