I'll never forget the first time I had tree tomato.

Technically, my first time trying this fruit was in South America (where it originates from) in a beverage called jugo de tomate de árbol. It was so refreshing and also made with a lot of sugar.

The next time I had it on its own I was a little disappointed that I didn't love it. I think this is one of those fruits that some people need to try a few times to truly enjoy the flavor.

I gave it a few more chances since then and have acquired a taste (more like constant craving) for this fruit. It's usually the first fruit I reach for when I make a fruit platter.

What I really like about tree tomato is that it satisfies the sweet, savory, and tart cravings all at once. It tastes sweet but it's not overpoweringly sweet like some fruits.

It has a savory component that is rare for most fruit and makes a great addition to savory dishes like rice and beans or avocado toast.

The sour flavor makes my mouth water and makes it go well with other fruits to balance out the sweetness.

Other than avocados and bananas, this could be one of the most versatile fruits. Although I find it tastes so good now that I usually just eat it on its own.

Tree tomato (also known as tamarillo) is in the nightshade family and is packed with vitamins A, C, and E. It's also a good source of B-complex vitamins such as niacin, thiamine, and riboflavin.
