About

Truss tomatoes are almost always grown in greenhouses. The varieties ripen uniformly with the fruit remaining strongly attached to the fruiting stem. This allows the fruit to be sold as a cluster or bunch. Round, red fruited varieties typically have around six fruit in a bunch with each fruit being around 120-140 grams. Cherry and cocktail size fruit can also come in a truss style.
Because these are grown in the protected environment of a greenhouse the fruit is always of high quality and has excellent presentation. Typically these sell for a higher price than outdoor fruit in recognition of the higher cost of production.

Seasons: Available all year round.

Regions: The growing regions in Western Australia are Perth & Surrounds, Coral Coast and the South West.
