Organic Round Tomatoes (Lancs)




Although thought of as a vegetable, tomatoes are actually a fruit that belongs to the night shade family. Our round tomatoes are juicy and sweet, and are equally magnificent freshly cut in salads or salsa or cooked for a sauce or soup. Ways to enjoy this wonderful creation are numerous. Let us know how you enjoy them most!

* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.

Additional information



Storage info:

They are best kept out of the fridge in a cool temperature. If green, leave at room temperature (not in direct sunlight) until they ripen.
Did you know, to hasten the ripening procedure, you can place green tomatoes in a paper bag with an almost ripe banana? The banana omits ethylene gas a necessary component of ripening. If already turning red, this process is not necessary, as it omits its own ethylene.

Health benefits
