Fun Facts

Did you know these 3 things about tomatoes?

  1. Tomato flavour comes from a mix of plant chemistry and garden variables such as temperature, sun, rain, and soil type.

  2. The cold air in the fridge blocks the tomato flavour. Word to the wise: keep your tomatoes out on the counter if you want them to taste good and retain their wonderful texture.

  3. Pretty much all almost all tomato varieties are red although other colours are possible including green, yellow, orange, pink, black, brown, white, and purple.
