Tamarillo is commonly known as the Tree Tomato. It grows into a small shrub at a height of 3-4 m. It has rich red coloured, smooth skinned egg shaped fruits that not only very attractive on the tree but they are deliciously edible. Tamarillos, apart from being eaten fresh can be cooked in the same way as tomatoes and can be used to make jam. They also make an excellent chutney. Fruits are large, about 7cm long and hang off the tree's branches like clusters of baubles. They prefer warm to tropical climates but when established can handle temps down to -4C. They do best in full sun and soil that is well drained and enriched with good compost and some added chook poo. They require, protection from strong winds, and also regular watering in dry seasons. Propagate the seed by placing them on a tray or pot of premium seed raising mixture and cover lightly with vermiculite or a fine layer of more seed raising mixutre. Water them gently and keep moist, not wet as this will rot the seed. Seeds can take some weeks to germinate. Do not transplant the seeds until the garden soil has warmed after the last frosts.
