According to ANSA news agency, farmers claim that the tomato was produced by natural methods without genetic manipulations.

In true Italian style, the super tomato was first served up in a pasta sauce to the country's Economy Minister Giulio Tremonti, Agriculture Minister Giancarlo Galan and Labor Minister Maurizio Sacconi - who savoured it with a glass of Italian red wine.

"The anti-ageing super tomato is also effective in helping prevent cardiovascular diseases and tumours," the Australian quoted farmers union Coldiretti as saying.
