Fresh Cocktail Tomatoes
Country Of Origin: Turkey
Are available all year round.
The size and colours will vary but generally, cocktail tomatoes are globe-shaped and much larger compared to a cherry or grape tomato. The cocktail tomatoes are firm, thin and smooth-skinned and they will have excellent flavour and juiciness, balancing acid and sweetness perfectly.
Perfect size for mouth-popping! Add gorgeous colour and great flavour to fresh mixed green salads. Ideal garnish for open-face sandwiches and pita bread specialities. Dress up appetizer platters and veggie trays.
Tomatoes contain high levels of vitamin C and vitamin A, along with a large range of valuable cancer-fighting phytochemicals, most notably lycopene. Research shows that the protective effects of tomatoes against prostate cancer and heart disease result from the synergy of lycopene and other phytonutrients that are naturally present in whole tomatoes.
