The positive trend for colored table tomatoes continues - while they used to be available only in northern European markets, they are now consumed all over the continent.
One of the more interesting seasonal products of the past few years is Dolcinetto® Gourmet. We have talked about it with the sales manager of Cooperativa Produttori Associati Citrosol, Gino Caggia.
"Dolcinetto® Gourmet is a blend of cherry tomatoes of different colors - red, yellow and orange - with a lively flavor that makes the difference compared with the other products currently available. Just think that Dolcinetto® Gourmet is the result of a lengthy and patient work of varietal selection that has led to choosing different plants whose fruits boast harmonious sensory notes."
"These special tomatoes are grown only between December and June, in greenhouses and using soilless techniques. They are harvested by hand in bunches or as single fruits. One of our leading foreign clients has chosen the bunch version and consumers can choose between mixes or single products. What surprised us is the fact that stores ask for more quantities of the colored produce instead of traditional red tomatoes. Consumers from some European countries are willing to purchase yellow or orange tomatoes, but do not buy them again if they do not meet the expectations of a tomato with a high-end flavor."
"The different color attracts consumers, but they cannot be disappointed. Therefore we can say the innovation is only valid if it goes hand in hand with high-quality. Dolcinetto® Gourmet is the perfect combination of innovation and tradition, flavor and high-quality."
Dolcinetto® Gourmet is part of the "Fatti col Cuore™" brand which includes a whole series of 'specialities' such as "Perlinetta® di Comiso" mini-eggplants, "Peperlini®" easily-digestible mini-bell peppers, "Marzaninetto®" tomatoes, "Camonetto®" tomatoes and "Salinaro" tomatoes as well as the ore recent "Friggitello della Fiumara dell'ippari" peppers.
