The first Dutch-grown plum tomatoes of the season were auctioned at ZON on Monday 18 March!

The plum tomato thanks its name to its cylindrical shape that resembles a plum. Plum tomatoes are also called Roma tomatoes. The plum tomato is a meaty tomato with a sweet flavour and is suitable for eating raw or in cooked dishes. It is an ideal ingredient in soups and sauces, but also great in stir-fries.
