New Fruit Trees in the Shop: Mountain Papaya, Lulo, Tree-Tomato and More

By Canarius

Now you can buy new types of fruiting plants in the shop at  We have uploaded several new species.  Some of them are very interesting for the people who grow exotic fruits in Europe. They come from high elevations so they can grow in cooler  conditions.

Four species of exotic fruits are really interesting. They are now available and they are becoming tall – all of them are 50-80 cm in height. All are very fast growing and some are very rare in cultivation. 

  1.  Cyphomandra betacea – Tamarillo, Tomate de Arbol
  2. Carica cundinamarcensis (Now Vasconcella) – Mountain Papaya – Papaya de los Andes.  Trunk base is 4-5 cm NOW.
  3.  Solanum quitoense – Lulo – Leaves are 40-50 cm wide NOW.
  4. Physalis alkekengi – Farolillo chino, Alquequenje, Chinese Lantern Fruit
