Weed or Edible?

Posted by lpkitten (My Page) on

We used some compost in our raised beds and got a bunch of squash and tomato seedlings, as well as a few of these other seedlings that we can't identify. We let them grow thinking we might eventually be able to figure out what they were but we are still perplexed. Does anyone know what these guys might be? Thanks for your help!

RE: Weed or Edible?

Possibly a tomatillo. If so, you'll need at least two plants to get any fruit: tomatillos only bear fruit if the flowers are pollinated by pollen from a different tomatillo plant: the same variety of tomatillo will work, but it must be a separate plant.
