Red Grape tomatoes are bright to dark red in color with a firm, smooth skin, and a shape similar to that of an olive or grape. Like the cherry tomato, Red Grape tomatoes are small and flavorfully sweet, however they have a thicker skin that is crack resistant, handling packing and shipping better with a longer shelf life.

Ever since Great Grandfather John purchased his first plot of land back in the 1930s, farming has remained a family tradition. Three generations later, and still located in the southern lands of the Fraser Valley, Taves Family Farms continues to thrive. Only, now it's John's grandson, Loren Taves, who operates the farm along with his wife, Corinne, and their children.
They will be the first ones to tell you that living on a farm in the Fraser Valley is living the dream. One farm quickly grew to a few, and now they harvest everything from apples to heirloom tomatoes to pumpkins. The Taves decided to share their gifts by creating an agritourism attraction called the Applebarn. Every September, our communities tell them that they eagerly wait for the doors to open so they can pick their own apples or bring their families out for some fall family entertainment!
Although they are not certified organic, they have chosen a sustainable method of agriculture called the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach, which uses the least harmful methods available to control continual attacks on our crops. At Taves Family Farms, we adhere to British Columbia and Canada's requirements when applying agricultural chemicals and take great precautions to protect the land, our customers, staff and family.
