    Our Dutch Brown Chocolate-Cherry Tomatoes have a rich choco colour and a complex flavour. Really unique Heirloom tomato with incredible flavour and colour. It is very sweet with an exceptional tomato flavour, this variety really stands out amongst other tomatoes.

    An unusual variety dressed in appealing, earthy- brown skins. More than a novelty - these cherry tomatoes have very good flavour and are sweet and juicy. A very different look for fresh and cooked cuisine.

    Brown cherry tomatoes are a delicious substitute for classic cherry tomatoes, and they can be utilised at all stages of ripeness. When dark green to brown, their mild flavour and firm texture make them ideal for being used raw and sliced for salads, sandwiches, pastas and flatbreads. Once they develop a rich red hue, their texture is juicy and their flavour is much sweeter. At this later stage they are exceptional for cooking. They can be roasted, grilled, sautéed, or boiled down to make sauces.

    They’re ideal for eating fresh, either on their own or combined with other summer fruits and vegetables in a salad. However, they do very well roasted or grilled—and their perfectly round shape and dramatic colour mean they make an amazing addition to a shish-kabob. They can also easily replace traditional tomatoes in salsa recipes, their sweet and smoky notes going particularly well with chipotle flavours. Look for these visually striking tomatoes from late summer into fall.

    They pair well with soft, young cheeses, such as chevre and burrata, as well as aged cheeses like pecorino and parmesan. Other complimentary pairings include citrus, melons, eggplant, mushrooms, mild and hot chilies, poultry, pork, seafood, vinaigrettes, aged balsamic vinegar, herbs, such as basil and cilantro, and cream-based sauces, such as béchamel. They also lend themselves to being flash grilled or roasted.
