Tamarillo (Tree Tomato)

(Out of Stock)

The Tamarillo is native to the Andes of Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia and Bolivia. Today, it is still cultivated in gardens and small orchards for local production, and it is one of the most popular fruits in these regions. Other regions of cultivation are the subtropical areas throughout the world, such as South Africa, India, Hong Kong, China, United States, Australia, and New Zealand.

Prior to 1967, the Tamarillo was known as the tree tomato in New Zealand, but a new name was chosen by the New Zealand Tree Tomato Promotions Council in order to distinguish it from the ordinary garden tomato and increase its exotic appeal. The choice is variously explained by similarity to the word tomato, the Spanish word amarillo, meaning yellow, and a variation on the Maori word tama, for leadership. It is called Tree Tomato in most of the world.
