Peak season for tamarillos in New Zealand is July and August.
Tamarillos are native to the Andean region of Bolivia and Argentina. Wild tamarillos have all but disappeared from their native habitat. Yellow and purple varieties were introduced to New Zealand in the 1800s, and the red variety was developed here around 1920.
