Did you know?
Tomatoes arrived in France in the 16th century after their discovery in South America. 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 for optimal taste. Our Saveurs d'Antan heirloom tomatoes are packed by hand on the farm. It’s manual work to provide a mixture with freshness and optimal quality from plant to plate.
Almost 80% of tomato packaging is already made of wood and recyclable cardboard from sustainably managed forests. The majority of tomatoes are sold loose. We are moving from plastic to cardboard packaging.

HOW TO PREPARE SAVEURS D'ANTAN TOMATOES
Wash Saveurs 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, stuff them, dice them or slice them etc. It’s all down to your recipe and creativity!
Cut vertically rather than horizontally, as the tomatoes will keep their shape and flavour better in salads.
HOW TO COOK SAVEURS D'ANTAN TOMATOES
Saveurs d'Antan tomatoes are exceptional raw. It is best not to cook them in order to take advantage of their colours and taste. Nevertheless, like other tomatoes, it is possible to cook them and they are suitable for all types of cooking, so allow:
Cooking for a coulis
40 to 45 mins
In the oven as an accompaniment
They can also be served raw to accompany hot dishes.
HOW TO STORE SAVEURS 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.
Vine tomatoes can be kept at room temperature for three to four days in a fruit bowl or similar.
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.
Sweet, tender, tasty, juicy...Saveurs d’Antan tomatoes all have their own distinctive taste, so they are real allies to for creating good-looking dishes packed with flavour!
They are ideal for beautiful colourful salads but you can also cook them like other tomato varieties.
Tomatoes are not a vegetable but a fruit. They can therefore accompany both savoury and sweet dishes!
