Cyphomandra betacea 'Orange Blush'

Similar to the standard red Tamarillo but with a less tart more creamy orange filling.  The coloring on this tamarillo has a camo pattern. We sourced our seeds from a fruit from Berkeley Bowl grocery store in Berkeley Ca as we had never tasted or seen one quite like it.

This perennial egg-sized fruit makes for good eating, and is typically made into jams etc or made into a savory sauce.  Easily grown from seed (also cuttings possible but not easy), it prefers a a frost free environment (or protection from frost).  Otherwise grow in a large container and overwinter frost free.
