Product Description

Variety: Lucinda

Datterini tomatoes are by far the sweetest tomatoes and have a lovely inviting aroma. Sourced exclusively from Sicily, we tend to work with three growers to cover the whole year. Without question the preferred tomato of the chefs we supply, it is in a league of its own.

Please note: We have spent many years working with our growers of datterini to choose the very best variety for flavour. Most commercially grown tomatoes are bred for certain characteristics - particularly high yield and in some cases, to stay on the vine. Whilst it looks very nice for them to arrive on the vine, this has no bearing on flavour. Our datterini tomatoes will sometimes come loose from the the vine, but we can guarantee that they have always been ripened and picked on the vine, and will have a wonderful, sweet flavour.

Datterinis are so delicious raw some would think it is a shame to cook them into a sauce, so wrong are they. Try cutting in half, quickly sautéing with excellent quality extra virgin olive oil some chilli and garlic if you like

What vine?

I usually love Natoora but not this time . I received a long thin pack of loose tomatoes in varying conditions of freshness minus the vine. Looked like the leftovers at the bottom of the box.

No vine in sight!

Not only were these not 'on the vine' but there wasn't even a vine for them to be on!! The packaging is poor too - 4 or 5 of the tomatoes were in the packet, the rest we're loose and squashed amongst the rest of the shopping in the bag. Will try them again as they were above average in the taste department, (of the few that weren't squashed) but hopefully next time we might receive a whole pack and fingers crossed they might be 'on the vine'.

Supplier Response - Dear MrJ. Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback about our tomatoes. We have now changed our packaging to something more sturdy so you shouldn't have any problems with escaped tomatoes again! We are also very sorry that you were disappointed by the lack of vine.

Not on the vine...

I agree with previous reviewers - ordered these last week and NOT A SINGLE tomato was on the vine. However, they were still some of the tastiest little toms I've ever had...

I have to have my Datterini

Excellent quality! Raw or cooked this variety is absolutely delicious.

Supplier Response - Thank you for your lovely review! We love the datterini tomato, and have worked closely with our two growers in Sicily to grow what we believe is the best variety - the 'Lucinda' datterino. We believe it has the best flavour, few seeds and an incredible sweetness. We're so glad to see that you love it too.

Linguine with Pesto alla Trapanese

Linguine with Pesto alla Trapanese

This is a really old recipe, rooted in Trapani, a port town in Sicily and adaprted from the more famous and classic basil pesto. Trapanesi substituted local ingredients such as tomatoes and almonds for the basil and pine nuts, creating this beautiful summery pasta sauce.
