Preserved semi dried red datterino tomatoes in oil, it is sweet with a rich aroma.

The difference between the red "datterino" tomato and other tomato varieties is its elongated "date" berries. The red datterino Così Com'è has a high sweetness, nearly twice that of the classic tomato variety, has an intense flavor and extremely thin skin, with a bright red color. This type of tomato has a certain consistency, so it can be stored for a longer time after harvest.

The well-known delicacy of the Red Datterino is perfectly preserved especially it is preserved in oil. Semi dried tomatoes can be used in salads, pastas and countless other dishes where you desire a punch of intense tomato flavour and with a touch of oil from the jar. A nice idea is to chop them up and use as an extra topping for traditional Caprese salad (aka tomato mozzarella salad).

Così Com'è (Meaning “as they are”) tomatoes come from Fianagricola, was founded in 1986 by a small 24-farm cooperative dedicated to cultivating local produce varieties. Nine members currently manage the 740 acres of farmland, which stretches across the fertile Piana del Sele of Campania in southern Italy. The cooperative was founded with one mission: to guarantee a pure, traceable Italian product, from seed to label. All tomatoes are non-GMO and free of preservatives, pesticides, sugar, and stabilizers.
