Discovering orange tomatoes with Inserbo

Green, red, yellow, orange: the colors of tomatoes are many and waiting to be explored. If the classic red tomato is now placed alongside the yellow one, which is increasingly popular in the kitchen and on the market, orange cherry tomatoes still represent a little-known novelty.
In this article we want to introduce you to this small and tasty fruit to invite you to try it in many new recipes.

Orange cherry tomato: history, taste and properties

In America, the original continent of our beloved tomatoes, some types of this wonderful garden fruit are classified under the name of "heirloom tomatoes", that is, "heirloom tomatoes", because they represent the legacy of pre-nineteenth-century local agriculture. Among these, tangerine tomatoes stand out, which are actually orange tomatoes .
The taste of this color family, both in the larger and "pocket" versions of the orange datterino tomato , is characterized by intense, pleasantly sweet and refreshing notes, which pervade a firm pulp with few seeds and a particularly thin skin.
Furthermore, on a nutritional level, orange cherry tomatoes contain a notable amount of lycopene, a very precious antioxidant available in larger quantities and in a different format (tetra-cis, more easily absorbed by the body) compared to the classic red tomato.
