Tomberries a Hit with Consumers
Edison, the company that brought “the world’s smallest tomatoes” to Australia says the demand for Tomberries is so high that the company has had to significantly upscale production, as the product gains traction with foodies, high-end chefs, mums, dads, foodies and more importantly children.
Edison secured the seed and are currently planting and evaluating Chocolate, Pink and Orange coloured tomatoes to further the eye and flavour appeal and extend the Tomberry range for customers. They are currently shipping 30,000 punnets each week.
Tomberry originates in the Netherlands and is 100-times smaller than a regular tomato. The versatility of Tomberry has meant that anyone can use it as a fresh snack, or in salads, stews and soups – or on pizzas and pasta to enhance any dishes visual appeal and also supercharge its nutritional content.
The tomato is being used as a new unique ingredient in 5-star fine dining dishes and in all kinds of hot dishes like Spanish Paella, where it adds not only a flavour with a textural burst once consumed but also a splash of colour to any dish. It is being used in soups, risottos and pasta dishes and is very popular with Mexican cuisine. Tomberry adds colour, flavour and fun with that little surprise pop of flavour.
