A Milpa is a family corn field in Meso-America that typically has quite a bit of plant diversity of food crops growing in it, one of which are these unique purple green tomatillos.

Plants grow to 3-4 feet. Very small (¾") purple-tinged fruits borne on 3-4' tall plants. Fruit typically does not burst through husk when ripe. Sharp flavor preferred by some cooks over other tomatillos.
