Houweling's Introduces Strawberry Vined Tomato to Signature Selection Line



DELTA, BC - With the tagline “Mastery Under Glass,” Houweling’s is continuing in its efforts to innovate the greenhouse tomato category by offering consistent high flavor varieties, including the company’s premium Strawberry Vined Tomato. Joining the likes of Houweling’s new Tomazing cherry tomato and Sweetoms grape tomato, Houweling’s Strawberry Tomatoes will be featured in the company’s premium tier line of offerings, Signature Selection.

Brand Manager Lindsay Martinez, took a few minutes out of her day to chat with me about the Sunstream variety, and how retailers can take advantage of the unique profile in produce departments.

Lindsay Martinez, Brand Manager, Houweling's Tomatoes“Our Strawberry Vined Tomato is a superior snacking tomato that delivers the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity,” Lindsay tells me. “With a deep red color and firm and juicy texture, this variety will not only make an impact in the greenhouse tomato category as a result of its aesthetic appeal, but for the intense tomato flavor that it also delivers.”

This incredibly versatile tomato is delicious as a snack on its own, halved into a fresh salad, or roasted to intensify the flavor profile. As a quick tip, Lindsay shares that strawberry tomatoes are great on the BBQ… Just skewer lengthwise, as many tomatoes as will fit. Then place them on the top rack of your grill when cooking your proteins or other vegetables, and rotate occasionally when you see the skin splitting. Serve warm on a salad or as a side.

“Retailers who consistently carry our Strawberry Tomatoes have reported frequent repeat purchases from loyal customers,” she adds. “The year-round California advantage allows us to build a customer base that can rely on consistent flavor and quality 365 days a year.”

Houweling’s Premium Strawberry Vined tomatoes come in 12, 9 oz. clamshells, with 120 cases per pallet. Houweling’s Signature Selection standards dictate strict criteria for packing, ensuring a consistent premium profile.
