A very common fruit in Colombia and also grows in other Latin-American countries. It is also known as naranjilla in Ecuador, Panama and Costa Rica. Similar to a tomato but with more consistency and yellow in colour, it is covered by a thin fur which is easily removed with a wash. It has a sour taste, is very juicy and its pulp is full of seeds. Its juicy pulp can be used in juices along with the skin or peel, allowing you to take advantage of the nutrients, fibre and minerals it has to offer.
