A tomato with a big heart
The Huevo de Toro tomato is a large tomato, with a heart-shaped or flattened shape, and its weight ranges between 300 to 600 grams per unit, being able to find tomatoes that can be over a kilo. Something very unusual.
Of an intense red color, this is a multilobular tomato, with few seeds and a very fleshy heart, which gives it a creamy and smooth texture in the mouth, with a perfect balance of acidity-sweetness; ideal to mix with salt and a good olive oil.
Nutritionally, it has a high content of vitamin C and antioxidant properties, which help protect us from cardiovascular diseases, cancer and aging. From Agroponiente we offer it to you throughout the winter, an ideal time to take that extra care of our defenses. It is a vegetable with great properties and an exquisite flavor.
