Not such a good deal now eh :-D

COLD.

Imported tomatoes during the summer months are killing the British tomato industry.

Tomatoes are grown on tomato plants. The bit the tomato is attached to is called a truss. Vine ripened tomatoes is a phrase that sounds good to supermarket customers (better than truss ripened). All tomatoes are ripened on the truss (except when they are ripened in cold storage by the supermarkets to make them last longer), some are picked on the truss instead of individually. Picking tomatoes still on the truss may make them taste a little better because the truss will keep them fresher for a little longer. Taste is not the first consideration when selecting varieties to pick on the truss. Truss ripened varieties are not grown for flavour but are selected so that they ripen as evenly as posible (red at one end orange at the other).

So export them like everyone else. When I lived abroad, it wasn't difficult to find UK sourced produce.

The OP didn't say vine ripened, you said vine ripened.
#18
The OP does say Vine as does the link.

I would buy British Tomato's if I could find them at this price.:roll:
#20
If anyone's interested, they also do a whopping great punnet (500g) of green seedless grapes for £0.49 too. Oh and 3 peppers - green, red and orange. The punnet of peaches were naff tho, not ripe (maybe they need to be trussed lol?!?). ;)

Are you saying we should import tomatoes from Spain, Holland etc and export out own British tomatoes. Think about that for a second!

Have you ever heard anyone say "tomatoes doen't taste like they used to" - yes they do, if picked when ripe and stored correctly (not in the fridge). Supermarket toms taste crap because they are picked under ripe without enough time to develop natural flavour. They are then stored too cold which upsets the natural balance of sugar and acid. Tomatoes should always be stored a room temperature. If you require a long lasting tomato then buy them in a can.

Let me copy and paste what I said again for you, I will highlight the important bits so you don't keep this painful charade going longer than it has to

"The OP didn't say vine ripened, you said vine ripened"
#23
Ripened isn't the word I was trying to explain. The word was vine.
If you don't want to continue this "charade" then go away.
#24
Hahaha

Are you 7 years old? What a childish response from this champion of British tomatoes

I understand the word vine thanks, but cheers for your explanation

All I am trying to do is explain what I know about tomatoes. I do not want to argue with you or anyone.
#26
I tend to shop at the usual big-name supermarkets and I buy a lot of vine tomatoes. Since I went to Lidl a couple of months ago (prompted from here), I find theirs to be far superior in quality & taste and also that they last longer, just stored in a dark, cool place. I go there now just to buy these and other fresh vegetables.
#27
89p per KG in Scotland. :x
#28
49p a kilo for the vine as well, well yes if you are silly enough to leave the vine on, i take the tomatoes off and just pay for them! thought that would be the sensible thing to do

Sorry Lakeside but you were the one who sounded childish in all this - OK purpse was bold and adbrupt in the way he wrote but he provided information that I found very useful while you seemed to purposely ignore what he actually wrote.

Edit: P.S. Yes it's a hot deal - but I'll certainly try and source some local tomatoes (I was wondering why they always tasted better canned than 'fresh' from the supermarket).
#30
That means you are being overcharged, you are buying tomatoes on the vine off the vine, and everyone knows they are cheaper off the vine ;-)
#31
Yeah cheers wombat

You are quite right, I gave up reading at the "killing the UK tomato industry" bit. Like a few others I suspect, I come here for deals not lectures. The name of the website was a clue that brought me here in the first place.

I know the lectures can be a bore - but there are sometimes interesting facts. The fights are also boring - so I'm sorry I grouched at you :thumbsup:

And I agree with cabbagebike - the Lidl vine tomatoes i've had before were cheaper and better than at my local supermarket.
