Tomate de Arbol or tamarillo is a popular Colombian fruit. It is tangy with a little sweetness, is a great source of Vitamin A, B6 and C and also contains Vitamin E and Thiamine. In Colombia it is used in juice, desserts, and sauces. In the United States I found it frozen in the Latin aisle at the supermarket.
