Tomato


Its appearance may change depending on the variety, but all of them share the same characteristic: flavour.

‘Eusko Label’ tomato is one of the most highly demanded produce in the markets during summer-time. It was originally brought from America in the 16th century. Appearancewise, this tomato is somewhat creased and of reddish and greenish color. Regarding its production, it is sowed by the end of March, since the heavy rain and mild temperatures of that period help its growth. The perfect time of picking is by the end of June, which is when the tomato offers that much-appreciated rich and authentic flavor.
