iLcamone is a special tomato
iLcamone, quello vero (the authentic) is a prized tomato grown only in the saline soils of Sicily and Sardinia. We at Moncada OP are one of the very few companies in Italy authorized to cultivated it.
iLcamone has a truly unique taste, characterized by a perfect balance between fresh, sweet and savory notes, which is released on the palate by biting into its firm and crunchy pulp. This all-Italian excellence is ideal for salads and fresh dishes, but also for preparations that want to play with texture. It is excellent raw, seasoned with salt and extra virgin olive oil, and goes well with meat and fish main courses. It is also a precious ingredient for a healthy and balanced diet as it is rich in vitamin C, carotenoids and potassium.
