In honor of Heart Health Month, we're focusing on heart-healthy foods. Plus, we also favor a little 'red' in honor of Valentine's Day, too! So, we're highlighting the perfect red, heart-healthy fruits - the CherubsÂ®, also known as salad's little angels!
First of all, these little delights happen to be the #1-selling small tomato in the world - and they're grown by NatureSweetÂ®. But why are they so darn popular? Well, we think it could be because of the soil, which is crushed coconut shells, where their own carefully selected seeds then grow and are nurtured until the moment that they are hand-picked.
Yes, that's right, we said that instead of soil, they plant in coconut husks! Once carefully picked, and within 24 hours, theyâ€™re then packed, shipped, and on their way to your local store. Seed to a store near you!
This little tomato is also non-GMO, and we swear, they're simply irresistible. But, let's get down to the 'dirt' of the matter. What do they do for you?
Well, they are nutrition-packed. The tomato has so many beneficial nutritional qualities:
- Promotes heart health
- Protects skin from UV rays
- Improves hair, skin and nails Increases stamina
- Fights depression
- Aids in weight loss
- Vitamin A: 20%DV; Vitamin C: 28%DV
Here's a great way to serve them, too, in this delicious side dish we just made! Plus, find other recipes by NatureSweetÂ® that highlight the 'angelic' sweetness of CherubsÂ® tomatoes!
