Tomatillos should be harvested / purchased when they are bright green, firm to the touch, and the fruit should fill up the husk. It’s ok if they are starting to outgrow their husk and bursting through. You’ll notice that when you remove their husks and wash them, tomatillos are covered in a sticky substance and this is completely normal, don’t panic! Give them a good rinse but don’t worry if they’re still a little on the sticky side, it’s part of their unusual charm.
