The Kumato tomato boasts a one-of-a-kind appearance that sets it apart from conventional varieties. It has a mesmerizing deep brown color that ripens from the inside out. When it is brownish-red with no green, the flavor is mild and the texture is perfect for cooking. When it is brownish-red with a green tinge, it has reached peak ripeness and is ready to eat fresh in salads and sandwiches.

The allure of the Kumato lies not only in its appearance but also in its taste. It has a higher sugar content than traditional red tomatoes, with a balanced acidity that really stands out in fresh salads, dressed simply with olive oil, sea salt, and pepper. Health benefits of Kumatos include vitamins A and C, as well as lycopene and beta carotene.

Store unripe tomatoes at room temperature, stem-side down, and in a single layer. Ripe tomatoes should be used within 1-2 days. While ripe tomatoes can be refrigerated, keep in mind that cool temperatures can affect their texture and flavor.
