Italian farmers produce "super tomato"

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Italian farmers say they've produced a super tomato with a higher concentration of lycopene than regular tomatoes. They claim the boost can help slow the aging process.

The super tomatoes were displayed at a trade fair in Rome recently.

The developers say the new variety hasn't lost any rich tomato flavoring.

The super tomato was grown naturally and was not genetically modified.

British scientists say they've developed a super tomato as well.
