Tamarillo Grower & Supplier
Welcome to Tamakura
We are a full time professional producer of tamarillo and avocados situated in tropical Northland, New Zealand.
Located just outside Whangarei and nestled underneath Maungatapere Mountain, our tamarillos are lovingly grown on our lush volcanic orchard, and handpicked at their optimum ripeness for you and your family to enjoy.
Bubbling with nutrients and antioxidants, tamarillos are a subtropical delicacy – delicious juicy sweet and citric.
Their culinary uses are varied – popular simply scooped straight out of the skin with a spoon, they can also be poached, baked, grilled, and used in desserts, cakes, chutneys and preserves. In addition, they can be added as a secondary fermentation flavouring to Kombucha and make sensational ice cream and sorbet. They are incredibly versatile and will add depth to any meal.
Related to potatoes, tomatoes and eggplant, tamarillos are low calorie but high fibre. One tamarillo will ensure you get 89% of your daily vitamin C requirement, and around a quarter of your vitamin A and E needs.
Our tamarillos are handpicked, packed and transported with care with shiny, smooth, unblemished skins, bursting with flavour and ready to take pride of place in your fruit bowl.
