There's a new species of tomatoes and this one tastes good even when they're not ripe!

The Kumato, as it is called, originated from a "lost" wild tomato and has been developed through ten years of cross-breeding by plant specialists Syngenta.

The new found fruit can be eaten throughout its ripening process from when it is dark green. It will have a mild clean taste at the initial part of the process and is good for slicing. When it ripens to a dark brown, it comes with a sweet spicy aroma, ideal for salads and sandwiches.

Finally when it develops into a dark red, the fruit becomes more juicy and particularly sweet due to a higher fructose level than traditional tomatoes.
