Tree Tomato | Tamarillo -Seeds

Tree Tomato | Tamarillo -Seeds Image

Tree Tomato is an extremely fast growing shrub to 3m.
The variety is often called
'Amber' as it has a golden fruit with a red blush.
Flowers are self-pollinating, and tree tomatoes may bear from seed in just over a year.
The tree tomato is subtropical and will bear fruit in cooler climates and does make a very good container plant.
Do not allow them to sit with wet feet as they will respond quickly by dropping their leaves and fruit, dying shortly after.
Seed usually sprouts quickly and their initial growth spurt is impressive requiring potting on in around one month.
Love the taste!
