Tomato

 

Tomato-licious

Enza Zaden has a long history in breeding tomatoes. We have a very wide range of tomato varieties, from large beef tomatoes to tasty vine tomatoes (truss tomatoes) and from baby plum tomatoes to pink tomatoes for the Asian market. Next to yield and disease resistances we focus in our breeding programs on taste, colour, size and shape.

Market demands

Enza Zaden develops varieties that are in line with market demands. In 1995, Campari was the first vine tomato variety with a delicious sweet taste. This variety is available under the brand name Tasty Tom in the Netherlands, and is called Campari in the USA. Sunstream was the first baby plum tomato available for harvesting both as loose tomatoes and as tomatoes on the vine. 

Worldwide selling

The Asian market has a specific demand for pink tomatoes. This is an interesting development for Enza Zaden, particularly since the gene that determines this colour has been identified, and the first commercial variety has been introduced. On a worldwide level, the tomato is the most important vegetable product on the market. We are selling in more than 80 countries our tomato varieties; so it could very well be that you will find one of our tomatoes on your plate.
