Small subtropical tree bearing clusters of 3-4" egg shaped red fruits looking somewhat like tomatoes. Can be grown outdoors year-round in frost free areas or as a big container plant that can be placed outside in bright shade during the summer; large leaves - protect plants from the hottest sun. The sweet-tart, acidic fruits have a meaty pulp and bring to mind the flavors of tomato, orange and lime. Can be used raw but also in any imaginable way (cooked, preserved, jams, juice, etc.). A high yielder after one year of growth. Also on the 'Other Veggies' page.
