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.
Our season lasts from June to mid-September. The rest of the year tomatoes come from our Spanish growers.
Local isn’t always best! Many tomatoes are grown under heated glass out of season, at huge environmental cost. When we can’t grow tomatoes at home without heat, we truck over naturally sun-ripened ones from our grower Paco Locano in 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 the United Kingdom
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).
