Cherry Kumato Tomato Seeds

Price for Package of 10 seeds.

The Kumato cherry tomato is a non-genetically modified hybrid variety tomato created from the cross of a wild and domestic tomato (varieties SX387 and/or OLMECA) by the Swiss agricultural company, Syngenta. It was created to have a superior flavor and texture compared to other tomatoes on the market and is uniquely marketed for use at all stages of ripeness. Its name comes from a George and Ira Gershwin song titled, 'Let's Call the Whole Thing Off'. The line of the song, 'You say tomato, I say tomato' playfully emphasizes the way that the Kumato is similar to the tomato yet at the same time quite unique as well.

 

Description/Taste

The Kumato cherry tomato is distinguishable from other cherry tomatoes by its skin which varies in color from dark green brown when young to dark red mahogany when fully mature. The darker hued skin of the Kumato cherry tomato is a result of their high fructose content. The shape of the Kumato cherry tomato is very round and has an extremely juicy inner flesh. Kumato cherry tomatoes offer a rich tomato flavor that has a slight sour taste when young and when ripe will develop an exceptionally sweet flavor.

 

Nutritional Value

Kumato cherry tomatoes are cholesterol free and rich in vitamins A and C as well as in potassium and magnesium.

 

Applications

Kumato cherry tomatoes are a delicious substitute for classic cherry tomatoes. They can be utilized at all stages of ripeness. When dark green to brown their mild flavor and firm texture make them ideal for use raw and sliced in salads, sandwiches, pasta and flatbread. When they take on a rich red hue their texture is juicy and flavor much sweeter, at this stage they are exceptional in cooked preparations. They can be roasted, grilled, sautéed or boiled down to make sauces.

 

Geography/History

A variety of Kumato tomato was first grown in the Mediterranean on the Almerian coast. It was discovered growing on the outskirts of the family farm of Luis Ortega in the 1970’s. Ortega noted the tomato was darker than a normal tomato and had a sweeter flavor. A characteristic which inspired him to create a tomato like that of what he had found, one that possessed an authentic yet superior tomato flavor and unique coloring. Specialists at the Swiss agricultural company Syngenta spent ten years experimenting with cross breeding to perfect the Kumato tomato and create what is on the market today. Tomatoes sold under the Kumato brand are grown under strict regulations in order to ensure a consistently high quality tomato. They are grown today in Spain, France, Greece, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Turkey and Canada.
