There are hundreds of varieties of tomatoes, each brimming with fruity, juicy flavour, bright in colour and packed full of antioxidants. Tomatoes are also rich in lycopenes – a compound linked with numerous medical benefits. Recent investigations show that lycopenes can be found in all colours of tomato – not as once thought just the deep red varieties. This is good news for U.A.E. consumers – who can enjoy both taste and tip-top health as they tuck into popular types of tomatoes, such as beef with its firm, marbled appearance; cluster – ripened on the vine; tiny, sweet cherry tomatoes and the juicy yellow varieties.
