Lovely photo, Herman, just had to 'google' it. Apparently the New Zealanders changed the name to Tamarillo to distinguish it from the ordinary tomato.

whats all this rot about sniffing mint have you been at the bottle again!!!TongueTongueWink fine capture of these fruits Herman they look very inviting.

info:A red, egg-shaped tropical fruit about the size of a plum. It is sometimes called a tree tomato. It is usually eaten cooked and can be quite tart when raw, though a sprinkling of sugar can help. Avoid eating the skin, which is bitter, but use the flesh in ice creams or sorbets and serve cooked tamarillo with poultry or fish. You can also use tamarillos in the same way as tomatoes to make sauces or chutney.Tongue

Sounds and looks pretty good to me, wonder if they would grow in the U.K. now we have this global warming, it's 21c at the moment with the central heating on lol.and all of 6c outside, you could send us all some dried pips to try Herman, lol. nice shot good colour like it, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
