I was a little worried that people would take cavemanjoe's comment serious so I tried to keep the humor going.

@cavemanjoe - Watch it, there are people in the paleosphere that say crap like this seriously.

It depends on what cavemen you are referring too. People were spread out.

Yes, the ancient "Tomatillans" ate and worshipped the tomatillo, erecting great monument to the "Great Tomatillo," which is oddly similar to the great pumpkin, but without the presents.

Tomatillos are members of the nightshade family but are closer related to the gooseberry. Unless you have an allergy, I don't see any reason not to eat it.

It's a plant, eat it. Unless you have a sensitivity to nightshades.

No, unless you have proof that cavemen ate tomatillos, you can assume they are highly destructive and will take at least 15 years off your life like gluten and dairy.

I eat them. But then again, I eat tomatoes some also, but probably only a couple times per week.
