Your Tomatoes and Beyond

Tomato History

The Tomato History has origins traced back to the early Aztecs around 700 A.D; therefore, it is believed that the tomato is native to the Americas. It was not until around the 16th century that Europeans were introduced to this fruit when the early explorers set sail to discover new lands.

Production Process

From seeds to PARYAS Tomatoes

we do our own unique way from the time the seed is planted to the moment PARYAS tomatoes are ready and waiting on your kitchen worktop. we work day in, day out to deliver a tomato with the best possible natural flavor.

 

The special flavor of PARYAS tomatoes starts with the seeds. Our experienced Dutch grower knows exactly what the seeds need to germinate into young, healthy plants. We provide the ideal conditions for the tomato plants to grow. plants are given a nice spot and the drippers constantly supply them with precisely the right amount of water and nutrients.

 

The substrate for PARYAS tomatoes is Coco peat, which is made of coco fibers and chips.

 

After a while of transferring young plants to the substrate, small yellow flowers appear on the tomato plant. And then it’s time for our bumblebees to get to work. We have lots of “bumblebee colony” in our greenhouses – These woolly creatures fly around in the greenhouse pollinating the plants as they go. Then the yellow flowers gradually transform themselves into vines bursting with delicious tomatoes.

 

Many light hands make delicious tomatoes. Day in, day out, our staff pass through the greenhouses giving the tomato plants plenty of love, care and attention.

We keep a close eye on our tomatoes every day. We remove some of the leaves so that the tomatoes get enough sunlight. We also pay close attention that we remove every side shoot so that more nutrients, more energy and therefore ultimately more flavor flow into our tomatoes.

 

Once they have reached the perfect shape and the perfect red color, they are fully grown. That’s the moment when we harvest the vines with a gentle touch, being very careful not to damage the tomatoes. Then the tomatoes make the short journey to the packaging facility.

 

Once the tomatoes arrive at the packaging facility, they are given a final close inspection. They are looked at from all sides and sampled by a rigorous tasting panel to make sure they taste as good as we want them to. Then it’s time to tuck up the tomatoes in our attractive but sturdy packaging to ensure they arrive in the shops in perfect condition.
