Tamarillo - Red, commonly known as the tree tomato, is a small tree or shrub in the flowering plant family Solanaceae. With an exquisite mix of tangy and sweet, tamarillos are very versatile and can sit equally well in savoury or sugary dishes. Tamarillos originate in South America. Tamarillos are excellent for making chutney, sauce, relish and jelly because of the pectin they contain. Many people enjoy them raw, simply slicing them in half and using a teaspoon to scoop out the tangy insides.


Tamarillos are low in calories. They have a substantial amount of dietary fibre and contain potassium, vitamins A, C, E and pro-vitamin A, along with antioxidants.
