“With high lycopene content”
Rediscovering our land through traditional varieties of tomatoes and making this vegetable known to everyone while complying with all the necessary quality and safety requirements. This the mission of ìNaturCuoreî, a range of products of the Orto di Eleonora dedicated to tomatoes. NaturCuore tomatoes are grown with integrated control techniques and are GLOBALG.A.P certified, meaning that they are continuously monitored in all stages from cultivation to marketing. Tomatoes are well known for being good antioxidants and a source of vitamins due to their high water and lycopene content and the good levels of vitamins. They also contain various minerals: iron, zinc, selenium, phosphorus and calcium. The health benefits deriving from the consumption of tomatoes are therefore remarkable: they have diuretic, detoxifying, digestive and antioxidant properties.
This excellent variety grows in clusters of 5-6 berries, each weighing between 130 and 140 g and can be harvested when the fruits are red or slightly green. They have good consistency and resist cracking, characteristics which guarantee a long shelf life after harvesting. They are also very appreciated for the high content of lycopene, a pigment which gives them their characteristic bright red colour as well as other important properties, in particular they help to reduce the risk of cancer and prevent cardiovascular disease.
