What is the sundried tomato?

It originates from a tomato plant grown on Greek island soil durable to drought conditions.
This plant produces a much smaller fruit that normal tomato plants but with an exquisite sweet taste. This is due to the dry soil that is cooled by the morning and evening sea breeze. Harvesting begins in the middle of July.
The tomatoes after being washed and cut across are placed in metal sheets covered with a protective mesh. There they dry for five to six days in an absolute natural way.
