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.
