Rich, dark and mysterious
Live on the wild side with our enticing Kumato® tomatoes – a flavour discovery that’s unique to Perfection Fresh. We first came across these lively Kumato® characters in Europe, before bringing them home to grow and share with our Australian customers. Radiating with robust richness, they are bold and authentic in flavour. Their dark, mysterious charm comes from a natural crossing of wild and domestic tomato varieties. And they taste as good as they look!
