Introduced in 2010, Sunset says its Kumato brand tomatoes have gained a following for their unique color, perfect size and well-balanced flavor. These non-GMO verified tomatoes naturally turn a reddish-brown color at their peak ripeness.
“Kumato is one of Sunset’s best-selling signature brands,” says CEO Paul Mastronardi. “We knew we had found an amazing product years ago because it was so unique looking and tasting. The Kumato is very balanced, not too acidic, with a mysterious and smoky flavor.”
In its November issue, Men’s Health Magazine published its picks for the top 100 Best Foods for Men. The list includes healthy, flavorful and easy-to-prepare products that were all taste-tested by the team at Men’s Health. Sunset Kumato tomatoes were selected for their sweet and tangy flavor, non-GMO verification and because they can be enjoyed on their own or in a variety of dishes.
“At Sunset, we search the world for flavor,” says Mastronardi. “We want to ensure that consumers enjoy our tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers as healthy foods that don’t need to be covered in dressings or dips; their flavor is best on its own. Being recognized by Men’s Health for that is a great honor.”
Sunset says tomatoes are a natural source of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that may help prevent certain diseases, such as prostate cancer. “Movember,” recognized in November, is dedicated to raising awareness for men’s health and when men grow moustaches for the 30 days of November to raise funds.
