Availability and areas of production
Besides the cocktail cherry tomatoes, the varieties we commercialize the most are the rounded tomatoes in vine and the oval Roma tomatoes, available all year long, and the beefsteak tomatoes.
This seasonal variety is bigger and irregular in shape and available on the summer season, but produced in northern Italy where the temperatures are milder.
For the rounded and oval tomatoes our best producers are located in Sicily.
The beefsteak tomatoes are packed laid in cardboard boxes, while the other varieties are commercialized loose.
Tomatoes keep best unwashed at room temperature and out of direct sunlight. It is not recommended to refrigerate them as this can harm the flavour. Tomatoes stored cold tend to lose their flavour permanently.
Storing stem down can prolong shelf life. Tomatoes that are not yet ripe can be kept in a paper bag till ripening.
