Sharon Fruit (Eng.) Tamatiepruim (Afr.)
One of the best tasting non-astringent varieties. The spreading tree is of moderate height and the large, skin-orange-red fruit ripens from early April through early May. The fruit is delicious while still crisp. Flesh dense, very sweet, excellent quality. They are deciduous trees and produce sweet, tangy, tomato-like looking fruit that ranges in colour from orange to red when ripe. Suruga can be eaten like an apple before fully ripe and the fruit is very sweet.
