Aromatic and rich, with a full plummy flavour - British Red Choice tomatoes are really something to celebrate. Launched more than 10 years ago and exclusive to Waitrose, this popular variety of the much-loved tomato is available from April to October but it’s in the summer that they really come into their own. Picked on Isle of Wright and West Sussex farms, it's the milder climate in these areas that makes them deliciously plump and juicy. Waitrose tomato buyer, Peter Cooke says, “Our two varieties of Red Choice tomatoes have been specially selected for their depth of flavour and for having a great balance of sweetness and that distinctive tomato flavour."
Perfect for salads, soups, tarts and sauces, take advantage of these little British gems and our range of delicious tomatoes.
