Food Glossary: Tomate de Arbol

Tomate de Arbol is a native fruit to Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Chile which translates literally to tomato of the tree.  It is a popular fruit to make smoothies from and alot of sugar is added as the fruit itself is fairly bitter.  It is filled with seeds and after trying to eat the fruit myself I would recommend using it for drinks or cooking rather than eating straight!
