Tzimbalo, aka Tzimbalo Melon Pear, or Solanum Caripense, is a fruit producing plant in the solanaceae (nightshade) family. It's a relatively unknown plant, but is finally making its debut in North America. The vigorous plant grows quickly, and produces an abundance of beautiful and delicious fruits. The fruits taste sweet and tangy, and are very juicy. First time growers can sometimes find it to be difficult to identify when the fruits are ripe because they barely change colour when mature, but they do get darker and a little bit shinier. The unripe fruits don't taste good, so when the fruits are suspected to be ripe, it's best to wait a week or two longer before picking them just to be sure. This being said, a ripe Tzimbalo tastes divine, and it doesn't take very long to understand what a ripe Tzimbalo looks like. This is definitely one of the tastier fruits in the solanum genus
