With great anticipation, we received our first crop of local tomatoes this morning from Nutbourne Nursery. Jenny, Gary and family have been lovingly growing these glorious fruits since 1979 with all their tomatoes being insecticide-free. Upon arrival, the shop filled with the aroma of fresh tomato from these vine fruits that had obviously just been picked.
Travelling just a smidgen over thirteen miles, these are just about as fresh as you can get. No cold storage and grown to burst with flavour, they really are very tasty. Currently featuring are mainly the smaller varieties such as Piccolo Cherry, Mini San Marzano and Yellow Cocktail but there is also Coeur de Boeuf. As with our continuous supply of apples throughout their season, Nutbourne grow an amazing range of speciality tomatoes throughout the summer so you will always find something new.
