Tamarillos

This is a little bit of a departure from what I intended to be in this blog, but Tamarillos are one of the feature fruits of my childhood. Very popular and quite common in New Zealand, they are not easy to get here on the Sunshine Coast, so when they do appear at the supermarket I buy a few, even at the high prices they ask. I have a couple of small trees planted so hope to be picking my own soon. I find then delicious eaten as is, but they are also great stewed and served with ice cream.

Tamarillos,  Solanum betaceum, formerly known as tree tomatoes in NZ,   are low in fat and calories and high in vitamin c.
