Little Scarlet Strawberry Conserve 340g. Tiptree
The product for which Tiptree is best known, delicious dark crimson luxury jam made from the tiny, rare & intensely sweet Little Scarlet Strawberry. Wilkin & Sons are believed to be the only commercial growers of this fruit anywhere in the world today, making Little Scarlet Conserve utterly unique to Tiptree. Did you know that Little Scarlet is one of James Bond’s favourite conserves? Our favourite little strawberry is mentioned in the Ian Fleming novel, From Russia with Love.Company information:Today, the farms cover 850 acres. That’s enough land for around 300 cricket pitches, or 450 baseball grounds. As more imported fruits become available and fruit seasons are extended, English farmers are moving away from fruit to more lucrative crops. Wilkin and Sons take a contrary view, growing more fruit at Tiptree now than ever before. It costs more, but the control it gives us over quality is worth the premium.Strawberries are just one example of Tiptree thinking: modern varieties may have more consistent shape, size and colour, but Tiptree strawberries are grown for their flavour and texture. Tiny, intensely flavoured Little Scarlets are grown entirely on the ‘Tiptree’ farms and always used fresh within hours of picking. Wilkin and Sons may well be the only large-scale growers of this wonderful strawberry anywhere in the world.
