Research on GM tomatoes offers the prospect of fruit that are better-tasting, healthier and longer-lasting via conventional breeding, according to a team at the John Innes Centre.

In a paper to be published in Current Biology, researchers found that purple tomatoes genetically modified to increase levels of anthocyanin - a natural pigment that confers high antioxidant capacity - boasted a shelf life of 48 days, which is more than double the industry average of 21 days.
