Produce Tips

  • Tomatoes contain lycopene, which has been shown to help fight cancer. Cooked tomatoes have higher concentrations of lycopene.
  • Be sure to keep tomatoes out of the refrigerator unless they are sliced. The refrigeration diminishes the tomato’s flavor.
  • Tomatoes are also a good source of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system’s ability to fight disease and cancer.
  • Make tomatoes easier to peel by putting them in boiling water for about 30 seconds and then letting them cool. You can then remove the peels with a sharp knife. Or, if you don’t want to wait for the tomatoes to cool, you can plunge them into cool water for easy peeling.

Selecting Tips

  • Pick tomatoes with bright, shiny skin and firm flesh.
