A few decades ago, in all the gardens of our country, there were tomatoes of only one color - red with shades from pink to rich raspberry.

Moreover, the shape and size of this variety of tomatoes can be different, they are united by the color of ripe fruits and improved taste.
Another positive quality of yellow varieties of tomatoes is their chemical composition: they have much more vitamins than red ones, yellow tomatoes are much tastier and sweeter. About 0.4 kg of these fruits contains about 2/3 of the daily dose of ascorbic acid, and about half of the required amount of carotene. Niacin, which strengthens blood vessels, is also found in yellow tomatoes. Since acids of organic origin in such vegetables are contained in optimal doses, they can therefore be included in the children's diet.
