Name: Buffalo Heart Tomato (Coeur de Boeuf)
Variety: Buffalo Heart
Country of Origin: Holland
Not that we know what a buffalo's heart look like, this tomato is also known as Coeur de Boeuf in French (basically translates to Buffalo's Heart). due to its strong resemblance. It is almost ALWAYS irregular in shape, with a fair bit of ribbing.
How to enjoy the full beauty of the Buffalo Heart Tomato:
Slice it horizontally. That's how we like it. Have it toasted in a sandwich with cheese or in a caprese salad! We tend not to have it by itself as it can occasionally be slightly mealy.
THE AVO PROMISE
Avo & Co. is about helping our customers rediscover the joy of food. This means that we want our customers to have a ""woah"" moment when they open up their box, a ""mmm..."" moment when they put a tomato or a slice of avocado in their mouth. It's also about helping our customers be all excited and looking forward to cooking whether it may be with/for someone or themselves.
On our produce, we try to get them as close to ripeness as possible before harvesting or sending it to you, so that you can taste its proper flavor (but the box should last you for 5 days to a week at least!). We also make it a point to try and not get produce when the season is just starting or ending as its flavor and price is not the best.
On packaging, we try to use as little plastic packaging as possible. (Exceptions being berries, herbs and meat.) It's higher cost and higher effort but we just wanted to do what we can along the way. (If you have problems with storage, get in touch with us, we would love to share tips!. We would also like to stress that we are not 100% plastic free at the moment! We are always looking for alternatives, so yea, feel free to hit us up with suggestions.)
We hope that you enjoy our seasonal fresh produce and that it bring you joy to receive the delivery.
