For the sweetest, sunniest fresh tomato flavor, there’s nothing better than these organic yellow datterini from Bio Orto. The name means “little dates,” and they’re so called both for their diminutive size and their candylike sweetness. Grown in Foggia, in the southern region of Puglia, datterini thrive in the intense heat (the region gets, on average, 2,500 hours of sun a year!), which is tempered by cool breezes from the surrounding Mediterranean Sea. Their natural sugars are concentrated by those long hours in the sun, giving these tomatoes a well-balanced flavor profile that sings with ripe sweetness. Yellow datterini have the highest sugar content of all, with minimal acidity. They make a sunny addition to pizzas, salads, and composed pastas. When cherry tomatoes disappoint, these datterini deliver!
