It is very sweet with an average of 7 degrees or more in the season compared to 4 or 5 degrees in ordinary tomatoes, and the fruit is classified as a medium-sized tomato (30 g or more and less than 200 g), which is about twice as large as cherry tomatoes. Members of the Goto Ruby Research Group in their 20s to 40s grow medium tomatoes (30 g or more and less than 200 g). It is shipped mainly in the Kanto region, has received high praise in the market, and is highly sought after by new consumers. Goto Ruby Tomatoes have a sugar content of 8 or more (normal tomatoes are about 5%), and are sweet and juicy.
In 2003, we started branding medium-sized tomatoes with a diameter of about 4 cm, and developed them under the name of “Goto Ruby Tomatoes.” The fruity sweetness comes from thorough water management, and only those that meet the standards are shipped as Goto Ruby. Shipments usually begin around autumn, and the sugar content is higher in the winter, and the season from November to March is particularly delicious with a good balance of sourness and flavor. It’s something that shines like a ruby jewel. Frutica tomato seems to have less cracking even in spring and autumn when the temperature difference between day and night is large due to the characteristics of elastic flesh. Also, according to farmers, it can be cultivated in all seasons. The grass vigor is rather strong in the early stages, so care must be taken not to cause overgrowth and abnormal main stems. However, it seems that additional fertilization is necessary early in the four-stage flowering when the burden of fruiting begins to be applied and the grass vigor tends to decline in winter. I have heard that the ripening stage is Wase and the leaves are medium-large leaves.
With daily research being valued, all of the farmers apply diligent application, and Goto Ruby Tomatoes are generally evaluated for their taste and quality, and there are many fans who look forward to them every year. This is because the reduction of pesticides is the first priority for stable supply, and more time and effort are put into improving and devising manure management.
