Bright Cherry Tomatoes

A cherry tomato is a rounded, small fruited tomato thought to be an intermediate genetic admixture between wild currant-type tomatoes and domesticated garden tomatoes.

Cherry tomatoes are believed to go as far back as Aztec Mexico at least in the 15th century CE.  Cherry tomatoes have been popular in the United States since at 1919. Recipes using cherry tomatoes can be found in articles dating back to 1967. The most common modern species of cherry tomatoes was developed in Israel in 1973.

  1. Interesting~ I absolutely love home grown tomatoes! We have picked all of ours remaining (because of the frost) and have many wrapped in newspaper in the basement to ripen. I also like green tomatoes lightly breaded with a touch of oil and fried. Yum!!

    1. Morning Barbara:

      Everyday there are surprises behind the door. Cherry tomatoes were one of them. After living more than 68 years, I’m aware of these miniscules tomatoes. Even my wife had no idea they existed and could be purchased at the supermarket.

      Wikipedia tells us they were in Mexico since the XVthI century. How do you like them green apples? 🙂

      That’s a wonderful idea to grow your own veggies in the backyard. Maybe my wife would be interested in starting such a project. Thank you for brining it up.

      Enjoy the rest of the day,


      1. We grow the cherry tomatoes along with yellow (low acidity), roma, and various large red tomatoes. We grow all sorts of vegetables and you’ll be amazed how much they taste better than store bought.

        The green tomatoes are rather tart but they are very good. Have a beautiful weekend!
