Mekostar’s plum tomatoes are grown according to GLOBALG.A.P. standards in our greenhouses in Da Lat. The plum tomato has an oval shape with shiny, deep red skin and thick flesh. Plum tomatoes start off green and ripen to orange before finally turning bright red. Mekostar’s plum 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.
Plum tomatoes have a thicker flesh than other varieties making them especially good for sauces like spaghetti. They can also be used in salads, stir-fries, soups, stews.
