The challenge of producing tomatoes of the very best quality, year in year out, is what drives my ambitions today. My wife Georgette also works with us and she organises everything relating to our personnel.
Vine tomatoes thrive in the Dutch climate
Growing vine tomatoes is more complicated in Spain and Italy. The heat there causes problems with fruit set and pollination. That's a problem we don't have in the Netherlands and we use that to our advantage. You can tell a tasty vine tomato by its deep, fresh colour - it's what we look out for at harvest. When it is picked, a large vine tomato weighs around 160 grams. Each vine bears five tomatoes.
