Did you know?

Tomatoes arrived in France in the 16th century after their discovery in South America. Tomatoes are an annual plant which produce 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 using 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. Tomatoes are picked when they are perfectly mature. Mini-San Marzano tomatoes are a very tasty variety.

Almost 80% of tomato packaging is already made of wood and cardboard from sustainably managed forests. Mini-San Marzano tomatoes are sold on the vine in wooden boxes.

Cooking tips

HOW TO CHOOSE MINI-SAN MARZANO TOMATOES

Select firm and colourful mini-San Marzano tomatoes. Check the freshness of the vines and stalks.

HOW TO PREPARE MINI-SAN MARZANO TOMATOES

Wash mini-San Marzano 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.

Mini-San Marzano tomatoes have a meaty texture with a sweet flavour and little acid. They are ideal for snacking, aperitifs, salads and even cooked (kebabs, plancha etc.)

They can be eaten whole or sliced. If sliced, cut vertically rather than horizontally, as the tomatoes will keep their shape and flavour better in salads.

HOW TO COOK MINI-SAN MARZANO TOMATOES

Because of their small size, they cook very quickly. Adapt the cooking time and method to your recipe ideas and the desired level of firmness!

Add a spoonful of olive oil to a pan along with a handful of cocktail tomatoes, nothing could be simpler.

A few minutes of cooking over a medium heat will provide tomatoes that retain some of their crunch or put a lid on the pan and cook for a few more minutes for more tender tomatoes.

To oven bake, preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Arrange the tomatoes in a baking dish and baste them with a drizzle of olive oil. Add salt, pepper, herbs or spices. Place the dish in the oven and cook the tomatoes for 8 to 10 minutes.

HOW TO STORE MINI-SAN MARZANO 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.

Mini-San Marzano tomatoes can be kept at room temperature for three to four days in a fruit bowl or similar. Leave the vines and stems attached because this guarantees their freshness. In addition, they continue to draw sap from them, even after harvest.
You should also avoid keeping them near a heat source as this softens their flesh.

Cooking suggestions

Mini-San Marzano tomatoes are good to eat just as they are, you can snack on them with a clear conscience! They are also recommended for aperitifs and summer appetisers, filled with fromage frais, tuna spread, tapenade etc.

While they can be served as an aperitif or in a salad, they can also be incorporated into cooked dishes (in quiches, clafoutis, roasted etc.).

They are perfect for children because they suit all occasions: snacks, picnics, aperitifs etc. They are like really healthy sweets! Ideal for filling up with vitamin C while enjoying yourself.

Chef’s tip

Tomatoes are not a vegetable but a fruit. They can therefore accompany both savoury and sweet dishes!
