You will notice the egg shaped fruit turning completely yellow or red depending on the variety you have got. Simply pull the fruit by snapping it with the stem attached.
Tamarillos are susceptible to damage from winds as the branches can snap. Protection against windy conditions is necessary.
Watch out for frost especially on an extra-cold night, which can cause frost damage leading to fungal diseases. You can provide your plant with some additional protection during this period by applying Yates Droughtshield to the leaves.
To encourage branching lightly prune the plant when about a metre high. Light pruning after fruiting is also recommended.
Grow in a partly shaded spot (Tropical and hot regions), full sun in Sub-tropical and temperate regions. Protect it from strong winds.
Water well, do not allow soil dry out after pod formation.
Best grown in tropical and sub-tropical climates and around coastal belt of Australia.
