True to its name, a tomate de arbol is in the family Solanaceae, but the fruit grows on a plant that is really more of a shrub than a tree.
This relative of the tomato is native the the northern Andes in South America.
This tomate de arbol was purchased at the Éxito in the Centro Commercial San Martín on the Septima close to Centro in Bogotá.
The longitudinal stripes found on this tomate de arbol is not typical, but they are not particularly rare either. The texture inside the tight skin of this fruit was reminiscent of a recently overripe tomato.
