Truly amazing

Made some delicious recipes with the bush tomato. I would recommend people try! Thank you


Excellent, thank you.

Tomato with a difference

If you can imagine tomato as a herb this would be it in slightly tomato-ish kind of way.

A welcome addition to the spice collection

A super addition to any tomato- based sauces. So far I’ve added it to both Italian and Moroccan tomato sauces and look forward to trying more recipes. My experimentation is a bit hit and miss at present as I try to determine the correct amount to add.


Quick delivery, tasteful packaging - great idea for Christmas presents. Something most people haven’t tried and need to.
