Also known as tree tomato, Tamarillo is an oval shaped fruit with bright red/orange or red/purple skin. The pulp is juicy, red/orange in color and contains small, flat, black/brown seeds that are edible. The taste is slightly acidic. The skin is not edible.
To consume a tamarillo, cut it in half and remove the pulp with a spoon. It is often consumed slightly sweetened, by adding a small amount of your preferred sweetener. The tamarillo is used for preparing juices, salads, sauces, ice cream and desserts.
