Canaria Tomato (Lycopersicon lycopersicum)

  • Canaria Tomato (Lycopersicon lycopersicum): as its name suggests, this is a typical tomato from the Canaria Island, more precisely, from the south of Tenerife. 

    Averagely ribbed, of medium size, it can reach and exceed the 100 gm, it keeps well for a while after harvest.

    It is sweet and suitable for various uses in the kitchen, it is good raw and in sauces, it is not very acidic but very sweet.

    The plant is rustic, and productive so it is suitable for sustainable trade, it does not have excessive requirements of water or organic substances.


  • Open to Companies

    In this update from Cercatori and towards the new year, we have decided to increase the products suitable for commerce.

    Important to say that it is always under the sustainability context: by introducing in farms the oldest varieties, therefore most arable by sustainable methods, this way we spread them where the impact is greater on the ecology and the market.

    Of course this is mostly about local trade.

    However, the many requests that we are increasingly receiving from different companies about traditions, have shown us that even economically, sustainability and tradition (or ancient) are synonymous of success.

    Sustainable and profitable agriculture is not only possible but desirable for companies. This is the reason why you will (also) find new products that are more suitable for trading, with greater production and conservation after harvesting, as well as wider uses in the kitchen; always, and in any case, ancient, rustic and undemanding varieties.
