Product of the week: Organic Tomato Speciality Punnet

image

These gorgeous nuggets of tomatoey goodness are a selection of speciality varieties grown by The Tomato Stall on the Isle of Wight in the Arreton Valley - chosen for its extra sunshine hours. Grown in a completely biodegradable system - from the coconut husk that their plants are grown in, to the strings that support the plants - all plant waste is composted and used to enrich the soil of their organic crops the following year. 

A punnet of these technicolour tommys is made up of a mixture of different speciality tomatoes, and there are over 40 varieties grown each year. Try using Golden Mini Plum to brighten up a simple salad or sample the sweetness of the dark green Kumato with just salt, pepper and a smidge of olive oil.
