HM.CLAUSE launched a new variety of tomato under the brand name ADORA.

This tomato benefits from breeding by HM.CLAUSE on Marmande tomatoes for more than 50 years, and has the capacity to meet the expectations of growers from the Mediterranean basin. This fruit combines the qualities of traditional tomatoes with a generous size, a sweeter taste and an unprecedented black color. ADORA is a concentrate of vitality, rich in antioxidants, a source of vitamins and minerals, and has excellent shelf life.
