Special cherry tomatoes
How They Grow
- Many different varieties of tomatoes are grown. They differ due to their shape, consistency, flavour and aroma.
- The cultivation of Jolife tomatoes starts in specialist nurseries, where the plant is grown. The best plants are then selected in order to be planted in the field. It takes about 3-4 months before the first tomatoes can be harvested.
- Once ripened, Jolife tomatoes are harvested by hand.
- At the end of the production cycle, the plant is replaced. The cultivation of Jolife tomatoes is alternated with other products (crop rotation) to maintain the main nutrients of the soil.
- Jolife’s Baby Plum tomatoes on the vine are excellent for preparing sauces as, during cooking, the skin deteriorates until merging with the pulp. Usually, they are cooked and used for pasta and pizzas.
- Jolife’s Cherry tomatoes are ideal for eating fresh or baked, but often they are also used in pasta dishes.
- Jolife’s Dates, Mini Cherry and Mini San Marzano tomatoes are ideal to be eaten fresh or as a snack.
- Natural source of carotenes, vitamin C and mineral salts, particularly potassium.
- The potassium contained in cherry tomatoes is an essential mineral to maintain the health of the nerves, the heart and the muscles. It contributes to regulating blood pressure and therefore reducing hypertension.
- Cherry tomatoes contain lycopene, a strong antioxidant which helps to combat the effects of aging and the loss of elasticity of the skin.
- The absorption of lycopene contained in cherry tomatoes increases with the rise in temperature of the food. If you want to ensure a safe source of this nutrient, eat tomatoes cooked.
