Whether you refer to them as a fruit or a vegetable, tomatoes are one of the most popular and versatile foods out there. They are the ultimate burger topper, the most important ingredient in pasta sauce and lets not even think about what a slice of pizza or a fresh salad would be without the glorious tomato.
Fresh Tomatoes - 365 Days a Year
Luckily, at AMCO Farms we grow perfectly ripe and juicy tomatoes all year round so you can enjoy the sweet taste of summer 365 days a year. In fact, at AMCO we've installed over 6000 high pressure sodium lights so we can grow our tomatoes right here in Canada and maintain that fresh flavour even when the temperature drops.
Our supplemental lighting greenhouse, houses over 135,000 tomato plants. Since natural sunlight is insufficient during the winter months, our lights are the perfect solutions for proper plant development.
Along with our consistent fresh flavour, AMCO tomatoes on the vine are always Non-GMO verified. So you can trust that when you eat AMCO Select One TOV's they are always healthy and never genetically modified.
To celebrate the tasty and oh-so-sweet tomato, here are 5 ridiculously delicious recipes you'll want to make all year round.
