Naranjilla

    9 responses

John Mc starts with ...
Thought I'd share a pic of my Naranjilla. It must be very happy with all the fruit hanging off it.
The fruit itself is quite tart, but apparently it can be made up into a nice beverage amongst other things.

Great looking plant, with the purple tinges and batwing leaves its more impressive than a Ferrari to show off to visitors. Unfortunately it sounds like, for eating purposes, I had better stick with the tamarillo.

Does anyone have a recipe for lulo? Is it just squeeze the fruit into a blender and add as much sugar as you need to make it palatable?

Mine is going nuts right now - its the wild type with nasty thorns, a low spreading almost groundcover habit and gives masses of fruit without water or any other care.

BJ it sounds like mine also with nasty thorns and masses of sour fruit.I think it is the sour Asian one used in paw paw salad and a variety of dishes.I hacked mine with a cane knife thisarvo and ripped seedlings out.I also would like to know how to use kg's of them.

Mike, is this a naranjilla you sent as seed some time ago? I must have got it mixed up with something called pea egplant?. It came as a larger than pea sized yellow round fruit chockas with seed.
I'll post some pics of my Naranjilla to compare. Mine has very few very short spines and more purple-ish in colour.

John Mc on reflection that was not my finest hour on the sharing front.They are however a valued variety in SE Asia for the abundance and sourness of fruit.Lucy's cocona fruit tasted quite similar to me and I have never had a 'good' naranjilla.The pea eggplant I sent has masses of pea sized fruit that ripen from white to red, rather than the prickly tree like one with green fruit.

So the pics above would be of a very spikey version of Naranjilla?

Here's a current pic of my Naranjilla.

John Mc yes it is just the common asian naranjilla with less purple and extra spikes.I see the spines are still modest but that will change if you elect to keep it.In the Asian food combination of sweet/savoury/sour that particular naranjilla can takle a dish to a place the humble lime can't reach.

Yes Mike, you're spot on, if you have a look at the 2 yo Naranjilla in the very first post, the thorns don't look that evident, but in reality they were numerous but nowhere as numerous as the asian var. The small plant above is a direct cutting from the adult.
