Mekostar’s grape tomatoes are grown according to GLOBALG.A.P. standards in our greenhouses in Da Lat. Grape tomato is a small and slightly long in shape with shiny red skin and firm flesh. Grape tomatoes start off green and ripen to orange before finally turning bright red. Mekostar Grape Tomatoes are harvested at the point of maturity when they are bright red and have the best quality.
Tomatoes are a good source of a number of vitamins and minerals and a very good source of vitamin A and lycopenes. Vitamin A is a key vitamin for maintaining vision and healthy lungs, heart and kidneys. Lycopenes are associated with improved heart health and lower risk of cancer.
The small size of grape tomatoes makes them a great snack and an easy addition to salads. They can be served with variety foods and used as an ingredient for stir-fries, soups, stews and in European dishes. Their firmer flesh makes grape tomatoes a good option for pureeing to create a nutritious drink.
