Nutritional values

The tamarillo, also called tree tomato, is botanically one of the berry fruits. The juicy, sweet-tart berry flesh is not only impressive with its delicate aroma, but also with its rich vitamin E and A. Both contribute to protecting the body's cells from harmful external influences.

For the body to be able to absorb vitamins A and E well, it needs fat. So before this fruity dessert, enjoy a main course that contains at least a minimum of fat - that's quite enough.
