The tomato spread par excellence
Tomàquets de penjar’ (hanging tomatoes) are the best tomatoes to rub on bread. These have an intense red colour that appears once harvested, shortly after the tomatoes are hung. Their skin is fine, and they have a lot of pulp, and they are very watery. The flavour is intense and sweet, and their acidity is low.
These tomatoes are popularly used to spread on bread, with olive oil and salt. The famous Spanish ‘pan con tomate’. It’s a very simple recipe, but as you well know, it’s a delight.
These tomatoes are an exquisite accompaniment to meat, fish or vegetables, as it enhances the flavour. Stir-fried, these tomatoes are an excellent accompaniment to stews. At Agroponiente we grow these tomatoes throughout the entire year, so there is no excuse to have a good handful of them in the fridge.

Tomato: flavour, health and quality cuisine
Did you know that there are more than 20,000 tomato varieties in the world with unique shapes, colours and aromas? Without a doubt, tomatoes are essential products to have in kitchens due to their versatility. Most of the varieties are red or green, but we increasingly see yellow, orange, pink or even purple tomato varieties in supermarkets. Whichever variety you choose, you will benefit from their many nutritional properties.
Consuming tomatoes helps protect the eyes due to their vitamin A content. It also improves blood circulation due to its vitamin B content and keeps the skin healthy due to its high level of antioxidants such as lycopene, which helps prevent constipation.
