An easy exotic fruit that is cultivated like a tomato. The bright yellow/orange fruit is produced inside papery husks that protect them from pests! Eat raw, dried, preserved or cooked. The tangy tart/sweet flavour creates a wonderful contrast when dipped in dark chocolate. The husk must be removed before eating. Grow two plants for best pollination.
