Rwandan Tree Tomato (tamarillo)

I have never seen this before coming to Rwanda.  And I have not seen it elsewhere yet.  I heard that it is a native of South America.  But it is quite common in Rwanda.  It is related to eggplants.  But it certainly does not taste like an eggplant.  

We had them for breakfast, I bought some from a market, …  It tastes somewhat like a tomato - together with a heavy dose of lemon juice.

You can get tamarillos in Malaysia too -- and yes, I think they're delicious! :)
