August is the new season of tomato production in Xinjiang, and tomatoes are beginning to be harvested!

At present, tomato planting in Xinjiang uses machines from ploughing, seedling planting, irrigation, fertilization and other processes, especially soil testing and formula. Mature tomatoes are picked by high-power tomato machine, which not only saves cost, but also has high efficiency, and truly realizes the “one-stop” operation from planting, picking, separation to loading.

 

Xinjiang tomato production has its special advantages and characteristics.

(1)Xinjiang’s lycopene and oryzanol are generally high in content, with less mold and good viscosity. According to the laboratory data provided by kakemei, the largest tomato product company in Japan, the content of tomato red pigment in various countries is 62 mg /100 g in Xinjiang, China; Greece 52 mg /100 g; Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, Turkey and the United States are 40 mg /100 G. Tomatoes in Xinjiang contain 5.5 grams of oryzanol per 100 grams of pulp, compared with 4 grams in coastal areas of China. Xinjiang tomato has less fruit cracking and mildew, and the mold field of ketchup is less than 25%, and the minimum can be less than 12%, which is far lower than the specified standards of China and some foreign countries (50% in Canada, 60% in Italy and France, 40% in the United States and Britain, and 40% in China). Xinjiang ketchup has good viscosity, dark red and shiny body, fine and uniform, moderate thickening and dispersion, sour and sweet flavor and delicious flavor.
