Tomatoes


Why is it that HillFresh's tomatoes taste so good?

There are more than 400 aromatic compounds in a tomato, but these comprise only 0.1% of the whole tomato. Which is why HillFresh 'steers' two important flavour elements: The levels and ratio of sweet and sour. The space between the tomato plants themselves is also an essential element. A greater distance produces sweeter tomatoes; the plants get more sun and produce more sugar. And if you pluck the leaves away from a ripe bunch of tomatoes you once again reduce the sugar production. In short: HillFresh delivers the best to suit all tastes.

Tomatoes are healthy and contain a lot of vitamin B1, B2, B6 and C, carotenes, potassium, phosphor and magnesium. Furthermore, they contain lycopene, a compound that can protect our cells from the harmful effects of nitrogen oxides and possibly play a role in protection against cancer.

Did you know?
Are tomatoes a vegetable or fruit? That was a question being asked in the USA as far back as 1893; the Supreme Court then decided that in the eyes of American law, the tomato should be considered as a vegetable (not a fruit).
The tomato is officially a fruit, but from a culinary perspective, it is a vegetable.

Cherry tomatoes


Wonderfully compact, little tomatoes: half the size of a standard tomato but with twice the goodness. No wonder they feel so firm. And the flavour? Wonderfully sweet, with a super juicy bite. Easily eaten as a snack or as a tasty garnish. Cherry tomatoes are also available on the vine, keeping them exceptionally fresh until they are ‘picked’ at home.
