Customer Comments on Tamarillo - Orange
Tamarillo - Orange
I have a tamarillo growing in cold Armidale. It is north facing and sheltered from frost by overhanging bamboo. Major crop (a big one) only after 3yrs. Leaves and tender shoots are killed by frost, but regenerate to provide a nice sweet crop in May-July. | Steve Walkden-brown - Armidale, NSW 10-Jun-2007
