Tamarillo - Red 8/10

Waterfall's Edible Fruits
Update: 1572 days 16hrs

Comments: -

Very unusual looking yet attractive plant with some very large leaves. I have it in the back corner of my yard in a corner which is sheltered from wind. Doesn't get a lot of sun in winter but will get plenty in summer. Has grown very fast and is loaded with fruit now.

One branch with about 20 fruits got too heavy and snapped in the wind, its still half attached so I have strapped it up to prevent further damage, the fruit held on for a couple of months and fully ripened.

Nathan1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2661 days 21hrs

Comments: - Settling in happily and growing, in a bit of a precarious spot, near excavation and site of new retaining wall. Will just have to be careful :)

DOH.. After presenting some small fruit and looking quite promising through summer 2012, it declined rapidly, and seemed to go black-ish, lose all of its leaves, and die.. Have seen several with similar behaviour in the local area, but need to read up on what it might be

Tamarillo - Red (Seedling)

Kathy2's Edible Fruits
Update: 2865 days 17hrs

Comments: -

Great big leaves. Juicy trunk. Is taking a little while to settle into my garden.


I tried to grow some from bought seed but have had no luck so far. This one is a gift from a friend.


Spring 2011: some new babies planted and my original has FLOWERS! Despite the evil palm trees dropping leaves and trying to kill it, and mites and green caterpillars doing their best to eat it, she is happy enough and has flowers everywhere!


Summer 2012: We had a LOT of heavy rain and wind in Spring and a lot of the tiny fruit was knocked off, as well as an entire branch thanks to the evil palm trees (how I hate them!). We still have some and I am so excited to try them. I am sure that now the weather has warmed up we will be eating them soon!


Planted: 2010

Height 1 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 3

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: No

Pest Control:

sap-sucking mite heavan = soap sprays don't seem to work, draagon's blood is the best. The cold weather seems to have helped with the mite problem.


Green caterpillars love it too = I am trying Dipel this year.

Spring 2011: my gorgeous friend gave these to me as a gift but unfortuately they got mixed up with the red ones so I don't know which is which! Eep! I guess I will just have to wait until next year to find out!



Planted: 2011

Height 25 Centimetres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 3

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pest Control: Watch out for the mites. They LOVE the tamarillos. I have noticed though that the one in more sunlight has fewer mite issues. I've tried a few sprays and  Dragon's Blood works the best.

Tamarillo - Red (Seedling) 8/10

Lucinda1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3396 days 24hrs

Comments: - My little townhouse Peramculture garden is bursting with edible plants.  One of my favourites is the tamarillo: I have three in the garden (doing very well, despite a severe frost a couple of months ago) and one in a pot (not doing so well).  These very pretty trees tend to put on most of their leaves at one level, and so have a lovely shape, a gentle curve at the top of the canopy and red pendulous fruits hanging below it.  They are pretty easy to grow, even though my place is a bit challenged with respect to sunlight, and always attract comments from visitors.

JohnMc1's Edible Fruits

This tree is value for money.  I've grown a couple over the years and neve failed. My current one is very tall but producing copious amounts of fruit each year.  I've got some yellow seedlings ready to go out soon, can't wait to trry them also. Apparently the yellow ones have less acid, making them taste sweeter.
