MightyVine Welcomed to Rochelle with Celebration Event

mightyvineeventToday, the City of Rochelle welcomes MightyVine to our growing business scape!  

Working under the mantra that the best tasting tomatoes are grown closest to home, MightyVine will provide restaurants and retailers in the greater ChicagoMilwaukee-Madison area with premium local tomatoes harvested at the peak of ripeness and immediately delivered to the market within hours of being picked, not weeks. Initial planting will focus on two varieties of on-the-vine, premium glasshouse tomatoes: the MightyVine Roterno and MightyVine Robinio, a slicing tomato and cherry tomato, respectively. These varietals, exclusively grown in the United States by MightyVine, were developed for their intense tomato flavor, rather than their ability to be trucked across the country. MightyVine tomatoes are responsibly grown under pristine conditions, utilizing the best industry practices and the latest greenhouse technology, using only 10 percent of the water used for field grown tomatoes.
