Tomatoes grow on vines and can be harvested for up to three months. They are originally from South America and were spread around the world following the Spanish colonization of the Americas. Tomatoes were introduced to the Middle East in the early 19th century. Nowadays there are more than 7,500 varieties grown worldwide. Eventually, we will be growing more than 20 different types of which many will be heirloom varieties.
Principe Borghese is an Italian heirloom variety which dates back to 1910 and is the traditional variety used for sun dried tomatoes. The plants are said to be very heat tolerant so we are hopeful that we will get a good crop throughout the summer. The fruit is sweet and has a nice texture, ideal for salads, sauces and drying.
