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.

Good Day!
