Cyphomandra Betacea - Tree Tomato / Tamarillo

20 Seeds

A  native to Peru, the Tamarillo is a small tree or shrub with robust, yet sparse branches growing to around 2 to 3 meters in height, with soft, almost velvety ovoid mid green leaves to around 30 cm.

From spring to summer, white to pink 2,5 cm flowers are produced, followed by the fruits turning bright red when ripe, which are sweet and tangy with a flavour caomparable to kiwi fruit/tomatos/guava, and similar in appearance to plum tomatoes to around 5 - 8 cm in length.

Minimum temperature should be around 5°C
