Why British Tomatoes are BEST

Why British Tomatoes are BEST

 The answer is simple… because of the taste!

 At R & L Holt we have over 40 years of growing excellence meaning that we really know how to get the taste of our tomatoes right. Listening to our customers’ requirements, each season we trail out different types, features, colours, shapes and sizes to see if we can improve on the famous British taste.

But why are our home grown British tomatoes the tastiest? This is because we only pick our tomatoes when they are flawlessly ripe. We are able to leave our tomato varieties on the vines for as long as possible ensuring they develop the most flavour.

 Being located in Britain means that we can supply our tomatoes to our customers much quicker. With imported tomatoes, they are picked long before they reach the supermarkets and your dinner plates. They are also stored in refrigerated lorries for many days reducing all the flavour they originally had. So being British grown means that we can do all this and still maintain the products’ fresh tasty quality. 

 However, don’t just take our word for it. Next time you shop at your local retailer, pick up both a British tomato and an overseas tomato and let us know which one you believe is truly the tastiest.
