Pink tomatoes with nice size and delicious taste
Diversification opens up opportunities for market expansion. At Rijk Zwaan, we search worldwide for new traits to combine with our existing varieties’ strengths. That’s how we found Asian tomatoes with a pink colour and subtle flavour, and that ultimately resulted in our unique Silky Pink© tomato varieties.
Soft on the outside, strong on the inside
Silky Pinks bring together the best of two worlds: the unique appearance and aromatic flavour of the pink tomatoes that originated in Japan, and the robustness and high productivity of Rijk Zwaan varieties.
All Silky Pink tomato varieties are characterised by:
- Pink flesh inside a translucent skin
- A naturally sweet taste with a hint of acidity
- A juicy yet firm bite
- Robust plants
Silky Pink is available in 2 variations: as cocktail tomatoes and fine truss tomatoes. The cocktail tomatoes produce an early harvest and a high yield. The truss tomatoes have a strong setting. This means that the Silky Pink varieties are productive.
Pink tomatoes enable a new market segment to be created that differs from red tomatoes in terms of both colour and aromatic flavour. Foodservice companies can also use pink tomatoes to set themselves apart.
