Tamarillo, the tree tomato from South-America

Tamarillo is an egg-shaped fruit native to the Andes mountains. It is also known as the tree tomato. Nature's Pride imports the beautiful red variety from Colombia. The flesh of this fruit is orange. The small, dark seeds are edible. Tamarillo is slightly sweet, with an intense flavour. The rind tastes bitter and is not usually eaten.

Tamarillos are produced on seven hectares of land in central Colombia, just three hours from Bogotá. This region has a tropical climate. It is situated at heights varying from 1,800 and 2,500 metres above sea level. The average temperature is between 13 and 23 degrees. The tamarillo enjoys warm, moist conditions and it flourishes in this region. De Tamarillo's are available in a box of 2,5 kg loose or packed 12x2.

    In the context of making packaging sustainable, Nature's Pride is replacing its (black) plastic packing sheets into FSC certified paper packing sheets. The paper packing sheets have the same function as plastic packing sheets. However, the original paper colour, without unnecessary processing, ensures that by using these packing sheets high recycling rates can be achieved.
