Can you say 'Kumato' & A Caprese Salad

Have you heard of Kumato? I am honestly not sure if you pronounce it KumAto or Kumato but I can tell you they are fabulous. If you love tomatoes, imagine a brownish variation that is a bit sweeter (meaning more fructose).

When I first saw them, I thought 'Great, another genetically modified food' so before I bought them, I went to the website and it appears they were reading my mind: "Are Kumato® tomatoes genetically modified products? Not at all! Kumato® is the outstanding result of tireless efforts to apply traditional plant breeding techniques and natural cultivation methods." So, it appears they have been created with genetics involved but not in a lab.

What are your thoughts on the Kumato?

Kumato Caprese Salad
1 Kumato, sliced
A few slices of Low fat Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Basil leaves
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar or Syrup

Prepare the kumato, mozzarella and basil. Layer them and then drizzle with evoo and balsamic vinegar/syrup.

I have never heard of the kumato. How did they cultivate it? I don't really like the color, but if it tastes good, I can live with it! LOL
