These are special kind of tomatoes which grow on trees. They are imported from Colombia in South America. We gave it a try but were too acid for our taste. However, they became excellent subjects to photograph.
This exotic fruit is known as “Tamarillo” The tamarillo is a small tree or shrub in the flowering plant family Solanaceae (the nightshade family). It is best known as the species that bears the tamarillo, an egg-shaped edible fruit.
It is also known as the tree tomato, tomate Andino, tomate serrano, tomate de yuca, sachatomate, berenjena, tamamoro, and tomate de árbol in South America.
