What Is Tamarillo

Don’t be fooled by the fact that these small, orange-red, oval-shaped fruits look like tomatoes. A tamarillo is its own thing, even if the plant is sometimes called a tomato tree. Originally found in Latin and Central America, this fruit has become a popular ingredient in parts of India, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, where it was dubbed “tamarillo.” It’s grown in warm, sunny areas worldwide, but since production remains small, it’s not always easy to find, especially fresh.
