There are all sizes of tomatoes to available, from the tiniest cherry types through to full-flavoured giant beefsteak tomatoes. We specialise in the ‘premium’ varieties of tomato, and they’re usually sold on the vine.
Peppers
Sweet peppers – also known as bell peppers – are so versatile in cooking. They can be used raw in salads and cooked in stir-fries and casseroles.
Alongside the traditional, familiar bell peppers, a large proportion of the peppers grown are now classed as ‘speciality’ peppers. These are the long, pointed versions and the little mini peppers. A real rainbow of colours!
