Why?
Most customers have their staples delivered weekly, so this item is set to automatically order itself every week. Your weekly shop will then arrive with no effort at all. Magic!
Did you know that when the tomato plant first came to the British Isles in the 16th Century it was used predominantly as a decorative plant as its fruit was believed to be poisonous? Thankfully, someone clearly took a risk and now we know better.

You’ll notice when your toms arrive that they have a little cushion under them. It’s to keep your tomatoes fresher for longer in the fridge, and it's made using organic and natural ingredients. Just leave it out with your empty boxes and we’ll collect it to recycle and compost for you.

Producer

We get our tomatoes from a number of different growers but this vined beauties are currently coming from Campojoyma Based in Almeria, Spain. They are one of our main suppliers of veg from the Mediterranean, keeping us full on watermelons, tomatoes, peppers and courgettes. This family run business headed up by dad, Jose, has been organic since 2005. They also work closely with a range of farmers from Carchuna to San Javier, where both the area and the climate are key factors in providing top quality fruit and veg throughout the year.

Storage & prep

Tomatoes absolutely love sunbathing, so leave them on the windowsill if they need ripening. Or, pop them in the fridge if they’re already ripe, and take them out a few hours before you eat or cook with them – they taste much better at room temperature. Give your tomatoes a quick rinse before slicing for your salad. A good tip for removing the skin (some recipes ask for this) is to place the tomatoes in very hot water and wait till the skin begins to peel away naturally, remove and, when cool enough, peel completely. The older the tomato, the softer it is.
