A tomato that can be sliced, diced and cut without losing its shape has scooped the Innovation Award at the Fruit Logistica trade show in Berlin.

Intense tomatoes, which are bred by Dutch seed specialist Nunhems, can be used in salads, pizza toppings, wraps or as a cooking tomato.

The key to the success of Intense is its ability to retain its juice, as well as maintain its deep red colour and fresh appearance after cutting, the company said.
