The MOMOTARO Tomato is a popular type of large-sized tomato in Japan. It was developed by the Takii Seed Company in Kyoto and has several unique features that set it apart from other tomatoes. For example, it has a pink-colored skin, tastes sweeter when ripened on the vine, has a highly flavorful and sensitive soft flesh, and is the best tomato variety for eating raw. Its name is inspired by a hero in one of Japan's most famous fairy tales, who was born from a giant peach! This is why the skin color of the MOMOTARO tomato is pink like a peach, rather than red. Over time, the variety has been improved to resist various diseases and pests, and to adapt to different seasons and regions.

Tomatoes originated from the Andean highlands and prefer high temperatures during the day, cooler temperatures at night, and a basically dry condition. Knowing the origin of the tomato is key to understanding how to maintain a disease-free product, and to get high quality and productivity.

You can enjoy the MOMOTARO Tomato raw as a snack or salad ingredient. Their natural sweetness and juiciness make them delicious on their own, without any dressing or seasoning. Alternatively, you can lightly cook them in soups, stews, sauces or stir-fries, and enhance their flavor with herbs, spices, or cheese. You can also make tomato juice or smoothies with them, which provide a boost of vitamins and antioxidants. It's worth noting that due to their juiciness, it's not recommended to put MOMOTARO Tomato slices in bread, such as sandwiches.

At Suzuki Farm, we currently only sell MOMOTARO Tomato seedlings, and do not produce them commercially. We have only a few experimental productions, as we find it challenging to deliver tender MOMOTARO Tomato fruits in good condition.
