A superior tomato in many ways
From Agroponiente, we bring you a variety of tomato that will not leave anyone indifferent. We refer to the Purple Star, named for its characteristic blue and purple hues. This tomato has a flavor and aroma that takes us directly to the Mediterranean, where we produce this unmistakable variety, so that you can eat it from the coldest months of the year until May.
The Blue Ribbed tomato has excellent marketing potential, and its firmness and texture are not adversely affected due to its great resistance. In addition, from Agroponiente, we have reduced the environmental impact and the water footprint of producing this variety, thanks to constant review and technological improvements.
This peculiar vegetable is also known as Blue Marmande, due to the high concentration of anthocyanins, which have a great antioxidant effect, and are responsible for this coloration. In addition to providing benefits for our immune system, it has vitamin C and a high content of vitamin B6 that also help reduce tiredness and fatigue. In short, the Blue Ribbed tomato is a gem from the fields that should be present in your dishes.
