Dark brown to golden green in color and sweeter than normal tomatoes with a contrasting slightly sour note, the Kumato is juicy and firm in texture, making them perfect for preparing delicious salads and many tomato-based recipes

Their thicker skin also means they bruise less and have longer shelf-lives than regular tomatoes!
