Exquisite, little and truly gorgeous red tamarillos are wrapped in a very smooth inedible skin. Perfectly shaped like their cousin, the eggplant, tamarillos are egg-shaped and grow in clusters of three or more. A plum or apricot-like succulent flesh encases two swirls of black tiny edible seeds. Especially suited for cooking, ripe fruit yields to gentle pressure and releases an aroma mix of an apricot and a tomato. Select fruits that are firm and heavy for their size.
