Our vegetable boffins recently grew lots of experimental tomato varieties. These orange baby plum tomatoes made it into our top three - they smell irresistible and taste sweet, juicy and full of sunshine.

Cooking

When tomatoes are at their peak, it’s a shame to cook them – a drizzle of oil and a sprinkle of salt is really all you need (through basil, mozzarella and red wine vinegar are classic additions).

If you’re going to cook them, the key is to go long and slow to intensify their flavour. Our favourite method is to roast them at a low temperature in the oven.

Storage

Delivered from our farm, so wash before cooking. Best kept out of the fridge and on a cool veg rack. Underripe tomatoes can be kept at room temperature, very ripe in the fridge - but bring to room temperature before eating for flavour.

Season

Grown here in Devon, the orange varieties are called Panchito and Tango.

Class

Our tomatoes are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).

Country of origin

Produced in the United Kingdom.
