Italy: Seborga relaunches black tomatoes

Italian company Seborga (Liguria) re-discovers black tomatoes and relaunches them as local products with the objective of obtaining the "Slow Food" recognition. Bartolomeo Durante traced the history of the vegetable, and found the first traces in a 1930 Fascist agricultural diary. "Black tomatoes are known for their antioxidant, anti-ageing and anti-tumor characteristics, thanks to their high lycopene content," explains Flavio Gorni, vice-major of Seborga.
