there are 10,000 varieties of tomato, but only a few of them are marketed. In France the choice is restricted and often far from what the consumer would like.
Today 80% of tomatoes are produced out of ground and the criticisms can be severe. The sudden arrival of older varieties has marked certain producers who are now more interested in the flavour. These varieties are fragile and were rare in supermarkets, but due to demand, producers and supermarkets have adapted these old tomatoes for large retail.
With 12kg/capita/year, tomatoes are France's second most consumed product after potatoes.
