This was sold to us as a heirloom tomato plant. It has lots of blooms and now these skins have appeared without anything inside them. What is this.

    Thanks. Hopefully it will be edible. I’m so disappointed as I bought two of these with the wrong identification.

    A Tomatillo? If so the fruits inside will fill out bigger than a ping pong ball. I think one has to acquire a taste for them.
