Cyphomandra (Tree Tomato)

Tomatillo or Tree Tomato are decorative, fast growing and easy container plants with large ornamental leaves. They will develop fruits in a wintergarden as well. Require plenty of water and fertilizer in summer. Plants which are becoming too large can be easily cut back in spring before new growth. For any humus rich, well drained substrate in a sunny spot throughout the year, in winter keep plants drier at a minimum of some 10°C.
Sow flat at 20°C in any rich soil in a sunny spot. Keep drier, cooler and sunny in winter at a minimum of some 10°C.
