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.
Almost 80% of tomato packaging is already made of wood or recyclable cardboard from sustainably managed forests. Round tomatoes are only sold loose.
HOW TO CHOOSE ROUND TOMATOES
Round tomatoes should be red and firm. If present, stalks are also an indicator of freshness.
HOW TO PREPARE ROUND TOMATOES
Wash round 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.
Round tomatoes are the go-to variety for versatility as they can be used in all kinds of ways and they are equally good raw and cooked.
Cut vertically rather than horizontally, as the tomatoes will keep their shape and flavour better in salads.
HOW TO COOK ROUND TOMATOES
Round tomatoes are suitable for all kinds of cooking, so allow:
Cooking for a coulis
40 to 45 mins
In the oven as an accompaniment
HOW TO STORE ROUND 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.
Round tomatoes can be kept at room temperature for three to four days in a fruit bowl or similar.
Leave the stems 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.
Round tomatoes are ideal for all types of dishes:
- Delicious raw in a salad: in thin or thick slices.
- Also suitable for all hot cooked dishes: tian, stuffed tomatoes, quiches etc.
Tomatoes are not a vegetable but a fruit. They can therefore accompany both savoury and sweet dishes!
Round tomatoes are a source of vitamin C. Make the most of them!
