The Milpero is a miniaturized variety of the tomatillo, about half the size of their cousin. The flavor is more concentrated, with an acidity that is less biting than the tomatillo. When fully ripe, they have a mostly purple hue to their parchment-like outer covering as well as the fruit. This name “Milpero refers to the fact that in Mexico they are grown in between the rows of corn in the milpas (corn fields). They make an excellent salsa ingredient!
