Tamarillo and Apple Crumble

Tamarillo and Apple Crumble


  • 6 tamarillos
  • 4 Granny Smith apples
  • 8 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 orange, zest and juice


  • 150g flour
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp rolled oats
  • 4 Tbsp desiccated coconut
  • ½ cup walnut pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. To peel the tamarillos, cut a small cross in one end, place in a deep bowl then cover with boiling water. Leave for 3-4 minutes, drain, then refresh them under cold running water. The skin will slip off easily.
  3. Slice the tamarillos, peel and chop the apple, then combine. Toss with 8 tablespoons of sugar and the juice and zest of the orange. Spread the fruit in the base of a 20cm baking dish.
  4. Process the flour with the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs, then add the remaining sugar and the rolled oats. Spread over the fruit and bake until the crumble is golden – about 45 minutes.
