Tamarillo - Grafted

Growing a red variety in a large pot here in Toowoomba, got singed by frost this winter but now as tall as myself and looking very healthy. Hopefully fruit soon!

Planted again NE facing shed wall, in courtyard area. Flowering after 3 months.  Was badly hit but a series of heavy frost over winter 2010, but coming away again. Have taken cuttings and planted in more sheltered NE facing site against the house.
