Tamarillo fruit

Tree Tomato is a fast growing small tree that bears heavy crops of red or yellow sub-acid succulent fruit. The fruit has many uses apart from being eaten fresh, such as being cooked in any way tomatoes would be cooked. Tamarillo chutney and jam is a taste treat. The yellow fruiting variety is usually milder and sweeter with slightly smaller fruit.
Tamarillos are very quick growing and will crop in 18mths reaching a height of 2-3 meters. They require well drained soil and protection from wind and frost.

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

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.
