Sun Belle Tomatoes
on the Vine
Sun Belle is partnered with Mexico’s leading greenhouse, BioNatur, to provide consumers in the US with year round consistent high quality tomatoes on the vine.
- Bunches of red greenhouse tomatoes clustered on the vine are ubiquitous throughout the world. But it was only in 1992 that Sun Belle founder Janice Honigberg saw a case of these tomatoes on the vine in Holland that had been grown for decorative purposes. Janice prominently showed this case at Produce Marketing Association convention in Washington, DC in 1992. These tomatoes – four or five tomatoes dangling from an aromatic bright green vine, firm but perfectly ripe – were a sensation at the show. Plane loads of these “tros” tomatoes were soon flying to the US from Holland and later from Israel. Soon North American greenhouses sprang up to fill the burgeoning demand.
- Sun Belle is partnered with Mexico’s leading greenhouse, BioNatur, to provide consumers in the US with year round consistent high quality tomatoes on the vine. Using state of the art Dutch technology, BioNatur’s nearly 200 acres of high altitude greenhouses in central Mexico produce superb tomatoes on the vine year round.
- Every kitchen counter should be stocked with tomatoes on the vine. They slice well for salads and sandwiches, can be utilized in pasta, salsa and other sauces and hold up well in room temperature for a couple of days while remaining on the vine. Do not put them, or any tomatoes for that matter, in the refrigerator. Refrigeration robs tomatoes of their flavor.
