Diversification opens up opportunities for market expansion. At Rijk Zwaan, we search worldwide for new traits to combine with our existing varieties’ strengths. That’s how we found Asian tomatoes with a pink colour, sweet flavour and juicy bite, and that ultimately resulted in our unique Silky Pink© tomato varieties.
Soft on the outside, strong on the inside
Silky Pinks bring together the best of two worlds: the unique appearance and aromatic flavour of the pink tomatoes that originated in Japan, and the robustness and high productivity of Rijk Zwaan varieties.
All Silky Pink tomato varieties are characterised by:
- Pink flesh inside a translucent skin
- A naturally sweet taste with a hint of acidity
- A juicy yet firm bite
- Robust plants
Silky Pink is available in 4 variations: as cocktail tomatoes (Silky Pink Ayako), beef tomatoes (Silky Pink Animo), cherry tomatoes (Silky Pink Sakura) and fine truss tomatoes (Silky Pink Kaori). The four tomato types form the Silky Pink range. Each outstanding on sweetness and juiciness and including high-tech quality and productivity standards.
Pink tomatoes enable a new market segment to be created that differs from red tomatoes in terms of both colour and aromatic flavour. Foodservice companies can also use pink tomatoes to set themselves apart.
