I have a cookbook from Marlborough that has many recipes. however one my Mum & I have used is layers of tree tomatoes & kiwi fruit. sprinkled with a small amount of sugar. they compliment each other fab.

When I get time I'll type some recipes up. are they in season now?

Use them to marinate meat, I love them as fresh fruit. Have had them cooked as well.

Blanch then and take the skin off (or if lazy like me and have a sharp knife, peel), slice or cube, sprinkle with a small amount of brown sugar (not more than a tblspn full- i use less than that) and sherry (a shot glass full or thereabouts) and leave in the fridge to macerate/marinate. They are delicious that way with whipped cream, runny cream, over ice cream or even just as they are.

I also prefer to just eat them as they are. I also used to eat them raw toasted Vogels instead of tomato. Currently we shake our trees with our grandies and eat the ones that fall.

We had tamarillo (with a little sugar) sandwiches as children. I'd still enjoy them now if they weren't so expensive to buy.
