73Tree Tomato; Red Fruited Tree Tomato; Tamarillo; Tomate de ArbolSolanaceaeCyphomandra betacea (dg fo pf wp)28Sow seeds anytime in pots or flats and keep very warm, moist and in the light. Germination occurs just about one day later than the day that you say "I guess these are never going to come up." That day is around day 30 or so. If you're used to growing tomatoes from seed then the culture for Cyphomandra is very similar except for the fact that it takes the seeds three times longer to come up, and what you get is quite a lot larger and potentially much more permanent than a tomato plant.

Seed: sow spring in a greenhouse. The seed usually germinates within 4 weeks at 15°c, within 2 weeks at 25°c. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts.

Cuttings of greenwood in a frame.

Succeeds in a sunny position in any well-drained soil. Prefers a light fertile soil. Dislikes drought. Plants are very prone to wind damage.

They fruit best with a temperature range of 16 - 22°c in the growing season.

The tree tomato is cultivated for its edible fruit in sub-tropical and tropical zones, there are some named varieties. Grow in pot outdoors in the summer and bring in for the winter. It requires a minimum winter temperature of 10°c for best fruit production but it is hardy to about -2°c.

Trees produce about 20 kg of fruit a year, yields of 15 - 17 tonnes per hectare are achieved in New Zealand. Plants are probably insensitive to day-length.

Very fast growing, it starts to fruit within two years from seed and reaches peak production in 3 - 4 years. Trees are, however, short-lived - the life of a commercial plantation is about 8 years.

This species does not hybridize easily with other members of the genus.

Plants have a shallow spreading root system and resent surface hoeing, they are best given a good mulch. Plants usually ripen their fruit over a period of time, though pruning methods can be used to produce a peak time of fruiting. The leaves have a pungent smell. Plants are subject to attacks by red spider mites.
Happiest above 15C, good indoors.sun or partial shadewell drainedloam10 eachSubtropical evergreen shrub to small tree, native to the Andes where it grows at elevations between 5 and 10,000 feet. The tree is most comfortable at temperatures above 50 degrees F but able to withstand a quick frost down to 28 degrees F. Tamarillos are fast growing and short-lived. They are shallow-rooted and their wood is quite brittle, so they do best when protected from wind. Their branches need support when the fruit weighs heavy. This curious tree can be grown in a container on a sunny porch, and is a reasonable choice for outdoor culture in S. Cal, the Gulf Coast and FL.

The tasty red fruits are high in vitamin A, B6, C, E and iron. Tamarillos prefer part sun and a thin surface mulch to keep the soil always a bit moist. The fruits are pendulous and as large as a paste tomato. They taste to me like a combination between kiwi and tomato. They are quite good.

Edible fruit, raw or cooked. The flavour can vary considerably from tree to tree, the best forms are juicy and sub-acid, they are eaten out of hand, added to salads, used in preserves, jams, jellies etc. The fruit contains about 150 IU vitamin A per 100g, 25mg vitamin C, it is rich in vitamin E and iron but low in carbohydrate. Fruits are 4 - 10cm long and 3 - 5cm wide.
