Tamarillo - Red 8/10

Jimmy2's Edible Fruits
Update: 1352 days 8hrs

Comments: -

a bit slow to start when young in cool weather but unstoppable after that. a great low maintenance tree. planted in heavy clay soil, never watered or fertilised. seems to always have a few new flowers. 2 red and 2 orange planted 5 yrs ago. both oranges have died but 5yrs is long for tamas. all trees produced kgs of fruit with little pest probs. requires staking, quite heavy cropping.

Tamarillo - Red 9/10

Ahimsa Cottage's Edible Fruits
Update: 2178 days 13hrs

Comments: -

I love the large felty leaves of the tamarillo. I found due to its thirsty nature that it was a useful indicator for wateing the rest of my potted plants prior to planting them out -if i saw the tamarillo wilt then i knew the rest of the plants also needed a drink. Our local mushroom grower uses Tamarillos as a sun shield for establishing a garden bed (here in queensland) especially for young seedlings. Now that i am famliar with canopy which the tamarillo generates i will definitely use his tip for the rest of my garden.

Tamarillo - Orange (Cutting) 8/10

Paulaf1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2461 days 17hrs

Comments: -

This tree is very easy to look after, but needs a good drink in dry weather, and a bit of protection from very strong winds.  It fruits a couple of times a year, and I find that if I take the fruit off just as they are turning orange, the fruit fly seem to leave it alone.  It is very shallow rooted, and a couple of mine have been blown over in strong winds.........and unfortunately they don't seem to recover very well.  From then on, they always seem to wilt, no matter how much I water them!!!  I have also had a couple fall over from termites in the roots.   But it's not too much of a problem, as I have seedlings coming up all around the garden, and they are also very easy to strike from cuttings.........and these fruit very quickly.

I live in a sub tropical area, and am only able to grow the orange variety, but in winter the fruits do go a lot redder.

Height 2 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 3

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: No

Fertiliser or Organics Used: horse manure, mushroom compost, bllod and bone and sugarcane mulch.

When I Fertilise: Spring

Pest Control:

The only thing that seems to affect the tree is aphids....but have also had 2 lovely trees about 2 metres tall, fall over......due to termites in the roots.

I  have found they are very short lived trees, and always have a couple of

Tamarillo - Orange (Seedling)

VF1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2927 days 14hrs

Comments: -

Tasted these orange ones at local produce market, (Tamborine Mt.)- delicious sweet-tangy taste, somewhat reminiscent of passionfruit but without the muskiness. Fruit must be fully ripe though, otherwise too tart. Good eaten fresh, but made into a very tasty chutney too. Have read that can be substituted for tomatoes in many dishes - have not tried this yet.

This fruit tastes like a cross between a passionfruit & kiwi friut, very refreshing & best eaten straight from the tree. My children love taking them to school as the deep red colored fruit always attracts attention from other students & teachers!

Sheree's Edible Fruits
Update: 3661 days 12hrs

Comments: -

I planted out in autumn (not great for our climate) in north facing position against a fence for sun and frost protection and it's doing great!  It's 5 ft tall already, received very little damage through winter and I can see it about to go crazy!  It gets very little water at this stage but has put on lots of growth.  We'll see.....

Almost 12 moths old and this is a fantastic treee!  Great shape, no hassles with pest or cold damage and I am still picking the odd fruit - in icy cold June!

Serendipity's Edible Fruits
Update: 3907 days 3hrs

Comments: - Grew quickly, I should have pinched back the leader so that it didn't grow so high, but I was expecting it to slow once it got to around 2m. Now is covered in fruit but too high for me to put fruit fly exclusion bags on it. Fingers crossed I get a couple to try with too much added fly protein :-)
