Origin Nature's Pride Tamarillo

Tamarillo - ColombiaColombia

Growing and harvesting

The tamarillo has a small, densely branched trunk with soft, thick
branches. The tamarillo tree bears fruit one or two years after the seed has
been planted. The tamarillo tree produces fruit for five months of the year
and it can live for between ten and twelve years. The perfumed flowers
grow in clusters on the shoot tips, which then develop into tamarillos.
Tamarillos are harvested when they are about 70% ripe. You can see that
on the outside, because the red colour is just beginning to turn dark-red.
The tamarillos are harvested using scissors. After harvesting, the tamarillos
are taken to the warehouse where they are checked for quality, sorted for
size and bulk packed. Next, they are transported to Nature's Pride where a
number are repacked in consumer units.
