A heart-shaped tomato can only taste good
The Japanese tomato has a unique shape, similar to a heart with a sharp end. It has thin but dense skin, which protects it well. In the early stage of ripeness, these tomatoes have a light emerald colour, and as the ripening process continues, the colour changes from purple to dark raspberry.
These fruits are quite large. The pulp is fleshy, very juicy, and has a delicate aroma and bittersweet flavour. It’s high in sucrose which, combined with the trace elements and minerals it contains, make these tomatoes very tasty and nutritious.
One can use this tomato variety raw or for appetisers, sauces, soups, hot meals and side dishes. So, the possibilities are endless. Haven’t you tried it yet?
