Tamarillo is also known as a tree tomato. In gently coaxing the complex flavours from this unusual fruit, we have discovered flavour characteristics that are silky and sharp, with rich berry flavours and overtones of passionfruit. Our tamarillo jam sits on the border of sweet and savoury and is magnificently versatile in pairing with cheese and meat.

Originally from South America, tamarillos sit slightly apart from the local tropical fruit community. They are plum-shaped, with deep purple and orange hues. In Europe, they are known as tree tomatoes. A ripe tamarillo is inherently sour, made intriguing by rich undertones of berry flavours. We have created an elegant and unusual tropical fruit jam, combining berry flavours with its distinct sourness, which is sometimes compared to that of passion fruit.

In Indonesia, tamarillos are eaten in local salad dishes and rarely cooked. Tamarillo trees grow in the cool highlands of Bali, often providing shade to hydrangeas that flourish alongside. We are often asked if the fruit is related to tamarind. There is no relation, and we think it is time that the versatile flavours of this little known fruit are unveiled.

Tamarillo with stilton cheese is a transcendent experience. Try it instead of cranberry with roast turkey, and as an inspired alternative to apple or apricot with pork, or game dishes.

    I can’t believe this is not an exotic strawberry. 🙂 When I first tried this jam, I thought I had bought the wrong bottle. That said, the Tamarillo jam has certainly more character than a strawberry.. It can be both berry like and savoury at the same time. Try it with some good salted butter on toast…. you’ll be hooked.
