Our Tomatoes
Are my tomatoes overripe?

All our tomatoes are carefully monitored by our expert growers, slow grown for maximum flavour and only picked when perfectly ripe. Some of our speciality heritage tomatoes are naturally soft and just need a delicate touch and a sharp knife for prepping.

Do you grow tomatoes all year?

Our season runs from March to October. During the winter, we have a carefully curated selection of Isle of Wight tomatoes for you to enjoy.

Are my green tomatoes underripe?

We believe that tomatoes don’t have to be red! That’s why we grow all colours of the rainbow, from yellow through to green and everything in between. When harvesting, our team ensure that every tomato is perfectly ripe including our visually stunning green varieties.
