July ⇔ October
A widespread vegetable in the Mediterranean area, it is commonly called a ‘coppery’ tomato and is distinguished by its deep red colour, round and regular shape, smooth skin and excellent texture.
It comes in clusters of 6 to 8 fruits, each weighing up to 150 grams.
It has a high lycopene content, the pigment responsible for its bright red colour, which prevents cardiovascular problems and the risk of prostate and stomach cancer.
The round red cluster tomato is excellent both eaten raw, in salads and bruschetta, and cooked, for making sauces and preserves.
Also try it au gratin.
