Frunet was founded in 1996 by Antonio Lavado who is fan of the organic culture. It is based in Vélez Malaga in the South of Spain in the center of the tropical coast. The special weather condition in this area allow them to grow tropical fruit and specialities of tomatoes like cherry tomatoes. They are also focussed in offering the best organic fruit with the best taste almost 12 month year around in the most of the crops due to the knowledge of the varieties suitable for the area.
Abel & Cole handles celery, celeriac and nuts on site. Due to our packing process and re-use of boxes there is a risk of cross-contamination from these, and all other allergens.
Tomatoes absolutely love sunbathing, so leave them on the windowsill if they need ripening. Or, pop them in the fridge in a paper bag or in their punnet 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. An excellent tip for almost-over cherry tomatoes is to pop them in the freezer, ready to be defrosted and used in sauces whenever you need them. Give your tomatoes a quick rinse before popping whole in your salads. 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.
