Tamarillos are one of my favourite fruit because they are so versatile. They can be eaten fresh or cooked, and a slice of ripe tamarillo is especially delicious with cold meat or a hot roast turkey dinner. However, I had never tried them in a pickle or chutney so was looking forward to tasting them in this product. My partner does not like tamarillos at all but I insisted that we both had to try the chutney as it would almost certainly be quite different prepared this way.

We often have home-made curries and similar spicy dishes, and our go-to accompaniments are some variety of chutney (plus a dollop of yoghurt if they are very hot). I had planned a meal of spiced venison and chickpeas, and had slightly overdone the chilli: it was hot even by our standards! So out came the Greek yoghurt, and it seemed the ideal time to try the tamarillo chutney as well. I deliberately concealed the label so I would get an unbiased opinion, adding the chutney with rice and fresh salad before putting the plates on the table.

When I had first opened the jar, I had sniffed the contents, noting that they smelled not unlike a rich tomato sauce. I then tasted a little on a spoon and the impression was still that of a sweet, spicy tomato. I am aware that in the old days the tamarillo was referred to as a tree tomato, and now I know why. It is not just the appearance that resembles that of a Roma tomato; it is the flavour as well. I was really interested now to see what my partner would make of it.

To say the curry was delicious would be an understatement. The chutney went so well with it that I think this will be my preferred accompaniment for curries in future. The sweetness of the chutney, with its acidic and slightly peppery aftertaste, blended with the venison pieces to create a totally perfect combination. We finished our meal in record time and went back for seconds. This time I said nothing, just put the second helping on the table and the chutney jar beside it with the label showing. The reaction was priceless: disbelief, then an enthusiastic attack on the jar. Tamarillos are no longer persona non grata in our house.

Now that we are on the same page, I can see myself using this product to complement many dishes. Basically, it would work with any meal where a sophisticated version of common tomato sauce could be used. Sausages (including sausage sizzles), cold cuts, as a pizza topping... and there are hundreds of other possibilities. And even though the price is quite high, I think it is worth paying a little more to get a product as versatile as this.

Incidentally, I was so intrigued by the flavour that I later googled it, and yes, the tamarillo is a distant relative of the tomato. I had never noticed the similarity when eating the fresh fruit, but in the chutney that flavour was unmistakeable.
