The mixed tomatoes from our Devon polytunnels are so popular in the summer, we’ve sourced the same varieties from our Spanish growers so you can enjoy them in the cooler months as well. Our veg nerds tried lots of different varieties before settling on these three as our absolute favourites: yellow Magginos, red Ship Saints, and an orange baby plum affectionately named FS995. All are sweet, juicy and bursting with flavour – and their beautiful mix of colours will liven up your plate no end

How to store tomatoes

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

How to cook tomatoes

This tasty mix of tomatoes is very versatile. Use fresh in salads, or cook into sauces, soups and savoury dishes. Try making your own fresh salsa by chopping them, adding red or fresh onions and a green herb, as well as a squeeze of lemon, vinegar, and a bit of sugar, salt and pepper. It’s great with tortilla chips or on a courgette fritter.

Tomato season

Local isn’t always best! Many tomatoes are grown under heated glass out of season, at huge environmental cost. When we can’tgrow tomatoes at home without heat, we truck over naturally sun-ripened ones from Spain. In a project with Exeter University, we discovered that this uses just a tenth of the carbon compared with growing them in the UK using heat.

Country of origin

Grown in Spain

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).
