    Good Morning-this is what I found.

    tamarillo = tree tomato = tomate de árbol Pronunciation: tam-uh-RIHL-oh Notes: This fruit is notable more for its ravishing beauty than its flavor. It's about the size of a oblong plum, with a smooth peel that can be purple, red, orange, or yellow, with the yellow variety tending to be a bit sweeter. Slicing it in half reveals black or orange flesh (the darker the peel, the darker the flesh) surrounding a nest of seeds. It's more acidic than sweet, and tastes a bit like a tomato. It's best if it's peeled and cooked before eating. Substitutes: papaya (sweeter, not as acidic)

    In Elk Grove Ca there's a place called Henry's Farmers Market. They carry tamarillo's. If your close check it out. (I'd call ahead icon_wink.gif )
