 Soggy Sandwiches Will Soon Be History, Thanks To Drip-Free Tomatoes
Soggy sandwiches will soon be history, for the world's first non-leaking tomatoes are about to go on sale in the UK.

Leading retail-chain TESCO will be selling drip-free tomatoes by the end of the week.

The packs of four will be on shelves for 99p, reports The Sun.

Usual tomatoes leak eight per cent of water after being sliced.

Tesco buyer Emma Pettitt said: "It's the best thing since sliced bread."

The non-leaking tomatoes were grown in Holland and are part of a long-term tomato seed breeding programme that began in 1986.

After trials using more than 100 varieties the breakthrough came last year when through natural breeding methods the growers developed one that held its shape when sliced, baked or diced.
