The Piccolo Tomato

sourcing location

We get our juicy flavourful tomatoes from France. Most of the tomato production in France comes from five different regions: Bretagne, Aquitaine, Pays-de-la-Loire, Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur and Languedoc-Roussillon. Although the French often eat the same types of tomatoes, several thousand different varieties exist! There are almost 2600 types of tomatoes grown in Europe, including 430 in France.

  • FROM THE KITCHEN

    Tinned chopped tomatoes make the base for great recipes for your baby, simply cook an onion and garlic in a little olive oil, add the tin of tomatoes and fresh or fried herbs like basil for a great basic tomato sauce packed full of goodness

  • NUTRITIONAL NUGGET

    Tomatoes are known for their high antioxidant properties. Contain large amounts of vitamin C and lycopene. Lycopene is more easily absorbed if cooked in a little fat such as olive oil rather than eaten raw.

  • FUN
    FACT

    Are tomatoes a fruit or a vegetable? A bit of both! From a botanical point of view they are a fruit, since they are result from the transformation of a flower. But from a culinary perspective they are a vegetables– courgettes and aubergines are also fruits, eaten as vegetables!
