The British retailer Marks and Spencer is benefiting from Israeli agriculture with what it claims is the first ripe and sweet green tomato on London’s High Street.

The tomato, named the Sweet Green, was first discovered in Israel and has sugar levels of up to 12 on the Brix scale, a scientific measure developed to assess the quality and sweetness of fruit and vegetables.

Marks and Spencer tomato technologist Jo Oliver said: “We’re really excited to be bringing our customers the first ever sweet green tomato.

“We’ve been working closely with our growers to create a stunning green tomato with a perfect balance of acidity and sweetness, that we are sure customers will love.

Not only do they look great, but they taste fantastic and will brighten up any salad bowl as well as being ideal for snacking.”
