This selection of Tamarillo we propagate by Grafting and Cuttings. Bears heavy crops of Red/Orange fruits within 1 year of planting. It enjoys conditions with free draining moist soil in warm areas. Tamarillos can grow tall however pruning can keep them under 2m and help develop more branching lower down the trunk. The flowers have quite a sweet perfume scent to them and walking out in the garden your nose will surely be led towards them. In good conditions they crop easily and heavily and the fruits can be eaten fresh or used in cooking. There are some popular sauces and chutneys to be made from Tamarillo's. Give them a go in your backyard and enjoy for years to come.

Gorgeous fruit which we grew and ate as kis in new zealand - just ignore the ghastly burnt rubber smell of he leaves and appreciate the taste!

If your tree is water logged, hydrogen peroxide h2o (not the hairdressing one) can reoxegnate the roots and they can come good again. Happened to me with other fruit trees and it worked. Fantastic product but expensive.

Tamarillos are very easy to peel. Simply pour boiling water over them and leave a few minutes until skin splits. Remove from water and lift skin off

Tamarillo

In NZ tamarillos are generally treated as a fruit, rather than a vegetable, and are delicious eaten raw (scooped out and left for a few hours to juice up with sugar) or stewed with a little sugar.
