We work tirelessly to achieve an uninterrupted supply of Amela® throughout the year and thus increase our production. We hope that you will soon be able to buy it without any problems.
6. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN Amela® AND OTHER TOMATOES?
The simplicity of Amela® hides an interior that will captivate you from the first bite. It is a tomato with an exquisite balance between sweetness and tartness, with an intense aroma and flavour thanks to a high Brix rating, and with high levels of nutrients and amino acids. A tomato that looks like all the rest, but isn’t.
7. HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO PRODUCE A JAPANESE TOMATO IN SPAIN?
Thanks to the transmission of “Know How” and the careful monitoring of the cultivation by Japanese technicians residing in Spain, Amela® is produced in the south of Granada using traditional techniques through Cooperativa La Palma.
Furthermore, the similarity in climate between our region and the Japanese production area in Shizuoka has proved essential, making the same cultivation system compatible.
8. WHAT ARE THE BRIX DEGREES IN A TOMATO?
Brix degrees (Bx) are the unit of measurement that determines the total quotient of dry matter (sugars in this case) dissolved in a liquid. In other words, Brix degrees indicate the level of sugar in a tomato.
In general, smaller tomatoes have a high Brix ratio (7-9°Bx) and are sweeter than regular, larger tomatoes (4-6°Bx).
By means of Amela’s unique cultivation method, we obtain a high Brix rating, reaching 9°Bx, a value unattainable for other tomatoes of this calibre.
9. WHY IS Amela® A PREMIUM PRODUCT?
In the cultivation of Amela® the size of the crop is sacrificed in favour of taste and excellence. It is impossible to recreate the balance of sweetness and tartness of Amela® with seasoning, even for professional cooks, making it a tomato unlike any other on the market. Amela® is on another level.
