Abstract: The carotenoid pigments of the fruit of the Tree Tomato Cyphomandra betacea were identified and quantified. β-carotene, β-cryptoxanthin, ζ-carotene, 5,6-monoepoxy-β-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin were detected in both the pulp and the peel. The quantitative patterns of the pulp and the peel were similar, with cryptoxanthin and β-carotene predominating. The high average vitamin A value (2475 IU/100 g edible portion) is due to the principal carotenoids that have provitamin A activity. © 1983.
