No problem, I just want to see what they are, I figured, and put that tomatillo in the ground a couple weeks back. It took right off.

Now, I just read that two tomatillo plants are needed for pollination... Question, is that true here in the US or is that only for Mexico?

If true this info should be added to that Basic info sticky.
