Dwarf Tamarillo Fruit
Here is the Dwarf Tamarillo, Tree Tomato, Solanum abutiloides. The fruits are edible, though Solanum abutiloides is rare in cultivation and plants have not been bred for quality of flavor but they taste great! Solanum abutiloides is most often cultivated as an ornamental plant, as the clusters of ripe fruit are very decorative. Plants or trees can get to 8 feet tall and produce fruits late in the fall unless wintered over then fruits early in summer with massive amounts of fruits or berries. Fruits get to 3/4 to 1 inches in size borne on huge clusters with as many as 40 on each bract! they go from green to an orange color and are very very sweet making it good for jellies and jams. We love to eat them fresh off the plant. Parts of plant are poisonous if ingested! Handling the plant may cause skin irritation or allergic reaction. Pollen may cause allergic reaction. Open pollinated 21 days for sprouts and up to 2 years for fruits. bring in for winter.
