Tamarillo, Dwarf

75% of 100

120 days. Miniature version of the regular Tamarillo, and a close relative. But this one ripens smaller fruit in clusters. When fully ripe, each fruit is a deep golden-orange. Very sweet, fruity, tropical flavor, with overtones of pineapple—dwarf tamarillos are superb for juicing, whipped into smoothies, or eaten out of hand. The foliage is very fragrant, and at all stages the plants are very lovely and ornamental! This South American native produced well in our Missouri garden, but may need greenhouse cultivation in the North. In frost-free conditions, it eventually grows into a small tree. Super delicious and easy to grow!
