Tamarillo 'Red'

Red tamarillos are incredibly popular in New Zealand where the ruby-red fruit, which contain high levels of vitamin C and E, is used for juice, jams, salsas and sauces. Tip prune in early spring as fruit is borne on new growth. Protect from cold winds.

How to grow

Tamarillos prefer an organically enriched soil with good drainage. Plant in a protected spot as the leaves and branches are susceptible to wind and frost damage. Mulch, fertilise and keep well watered during warmer weather. Pinch out the growing tips when the plant reaches about 1m to encourage branching, then prune lightly after harvest each year. Grows best in frost free coastal, tropical and sub tropical regions throughout Australia. Eat as you would a kiwi fruit.
