Our Spanish supplier sends us the tomatoes in April and May before we switch over to our Netherlands partner in June until September.
Initially we started delivered cherry tomatoes in schools way back in 2007 after much tastings and trials in local schools we came up with the Cocktail Tomatoes on the Vine. We have found that there is absolutely no waste because the kids and the teachers absolutely devour them. Some schools even manage to serve them up as tomatoes on toast at breakfast time.
When we first introduced this product in the UK High Street retailers all of the product was imported from Africa and South America. We quickly learned that some of these varieties would grow during our own summer season from June to September. So during the 4 planned consumptions starting at the end of June you will also eat Herefordshire and Worcestershire grown sugar snaps peas.
