Tamarillo

Tamarillo - Red (Seedling) 10/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 431 days 10hrs

Comments: - I love tamarillos and home grown are a bit sweeter than shop/commercial ones, I think, and I don't need sugar with ours. A very easy small tree to grow - but needs shelter and/or support in windy weather. Loves a good feed and water. Fruit fly don't touch ours. Tip pruning encourages new growth = more fruit. Prune after fruiting to get rid of aphid build up. Prolific bearer.

Have red & yellow-they grow like crazy, produce lots of fruit for a couple of years then drop dead so try & have a new one on the go all the time. Lucky the fruit are delicious as the leaves smell disgusting!

Delicious on cereal, pavlovas and makes great jam with rhubarb

Pollination: Self Pollination

I eat Tamarillo's when they are in season with Greek Style Yoghurt for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  They cost about $2 each, so my hubby tries to restrict the number I buy as it shoots the cost of grocery shopping through the roof.

It would be so much easier if I could grow my own!!

Tamarillo - Red (Seedling)

I planted Red, Orange and Yellow - they all died.

Too much sun, wind and aphids...maybe another day when I have the right microclimate.

Keep them low they dont like wind. I would build a shadecloth enclosure and an open roof, should be ok in full sun shouldn't it mine is fine (but to tall this time).
