Mini Orange Tomato is a rare variety developed by The Heritage Food Crops Research Trust Project. It has a tetra-cis-lycocene level of 3.6, indicating it is highly nutritious. Tetra-cis-lycopene is a highly beneficial bioavailable form of lycopene, and exhibits a golden-orange or tangerine tomato colour. But not all tomatoes with this colour contain tetra-cis-lycopene, as this colour can also be expressed by beta-carotene. Hence it is necessary to chemically analyse each tomato variety to verify whether or not it contains tetra-cis-lycopene.This variety is not only delicious, but vigorous and bug resistant.
