Tomatillo seedlings west/northwest of Boston?

Anyone know of a place west/northwest of Boston that has tomatillo plants?

      This place got cleared out big time since then.

    2. I think I saw some at Mahoneys in Winchester, but that was a couplle of weeks ago too.

      1. Hanson's Farm (in Framingham) had tomatillo seedlings at the Davis Square farmer's market on Wednesday. They have a farmstand and go to the Framingham, Winchester, and Sudbury farmer's markets.

            oh man, I think they had those at Mahoney's too...I had other targets on my brain and wasn't paying enough attention :-(

              I agree, they have been hard to find. I got a single green zebra plant at Pemberton last weekend, but it looked like the last one that had. Last year I couldn't find any. When I lived in upstate New York they seemed pretty common but they are much harder to find around here.

                Verrill Farm in Concord does Green Zebras. They grow a bunch of types of heirloom tomato plants and you have to order before the season to get any type for sure. But they have extras of some first come first serve, No idea what's left.

                They always have Green Zebra tomatoes for sale when the time comes. We go so nuts buying different kinds of tomatoes we just make a meal of a giant plate of tomatoes of all different colors, with some fresh mozzarella.

                  I *may* have picked up some green zebra tomato plants at the Farmer's Market at City Hall on Monday. I bought several (and I think my son didn't use the labels when he planted them for me - so it is going to make our growing season intriguing, lol). Certain one was green something or other.
