Casana

Cyphomandra cajanumensis

Native to the rain forests in the highlands of Ecuador. Like the tamarillo, the casana grows rapidly to a small tree.  Its large, furry,leaves make it an interesting ornamental, but it also produces heavy crops of mild-flavored fruits within 2 years. The fruits are oval and golden yellow when ripe. They are sweet, juicy, and said to be rather like a blending of peach and tomato in flavor
