Asda has won the race to stock the season's first Yorkshire cherry tomatoes.

The supermarket began stocking cherry tomatoes supplied by English Village Salads in stores nationwide last week. The tomatoes are in own-label ranges but their Yorkshire origin is flagged up on-pack.

"Customers are telling us they want to buy local fruit and vegetables where possible, so we're delighted to offer not only British tomatoes, but those grown locally in Yorkshire," said produce manager at the Asda Kingswood store Shaun Grey.
