Did you know?
Tomatoes arrived in France in the 16th century after their discovery in South America. Green d'Antan tomatoes are traditionally grown in open fields in south-west France and by home gardeners. Tomatoes are an annual plant that produces fruit throughout the season.
Our tomatoes are grown as a protected crop. This approach protects the plants from poor weather and pests, making it possible to reduce the use of synthetic pesticides. Prince de Bretagne’s market gardeners have all used beneficial insects to naturally pollinate and protect their tomato plants for several decades. They are committed to producing tomatoes from healthier and more sustainable agricultural approaches (harvesting of rainwater, recycling of water and crop waste etc.). Soil-grown organic tomatoes are available from May.
Prince de Bretagne’s producers harvest tomatoes every day by hand to ensure they are picked at perfect maturity. Prince de Bretagne’s Green d'Antan tomatoes are ripe when the yellow edging appears. These tomatoes are packed directly on the farm by our market gardeners, guaranteeing freshness on your plate.
Almost 80% of tomato packaging is already made of wood or recyclable cardboard from sustainably managed forests. Green d'Antan tomatoes are only sold loose or in trays of Saveurs d'Antan assortments.
HOW TO CHOOSE GREEN D'ANTAN TOMATOES
Green d’Antan tomatoes are easy to recognise because of their emerald green colour. They offer tender flesh that has a spicy, tangy flavour.
Green d’Antan tomatoes should be green with yellow edging, smooth and shiny. The stalks are an indicator of freshness.
HOW TO PREPARE GREEN D'ANTAN TOMATOES
Wash Green d’Antan tomatoes in water and dry them. Wash tomatoes at the last moment, just before cooking or eating them as they will keep better and retain all their flavour.
You can then cook them whole, dice them or slice them etc. It’s all down to your recipe and creativity! Green d'Antan tomatoes are particularly good in carpaccio and salads.
Cut vertically rather than horizontally, as the tomatoes will keep their shape and flavour better in salads.
HOW TO COOK GREEN D'ANTAN TOMATOES
Green d'Antan tomatoes are exceptionally good raw but can also be cooked. They are suitable for all types of cooking, so allow:
Cooking for a coulis
40 to 45 mins
In the oven as an accompaniment
HOW TO STORE GREEN D'ANTAN TOMATOES
The taste of tomatoes is first linked to the variety grown and then to their storage: to preserve their fragrance and taste, tomatoes must be stored at room temperature and not in the fridge.
Green d’Antan tomatoes can be kept at room temperature for three to four days in a fruit bowl or similar. They don’t turn red and should therefore be eaten green before they soften to get the best of their distinctive flavour.
Leave the stalks attached because this guarantees their freshness. In addition, they continue to draw sap from it, even after harvest.
You should also avoid keeping them near a heat source as this softens their flesh.
Green d’Antan tomatoes are a great way to add colour and originality to your dishes! These tomatoes are ideal for adding colour to your salads, and you can also transform them into it homemade green ketchup or even green gazpacho!
They make a delicious confit and their sweet, slightly acidic flavour also makes them great in crumbles.
Tomatoes are not a vegetable but a fruit. They can therefore accompany both savoury and sweet dishes!
