Grape Tomatoes


Two grape tomatoes are on the way. Grape tomatoes came out of nowhere a couple of years ago. They started appearing in place of the ubiquitous cherry tomato when ordering salads at local restaurants.

My taste buds prefer them over the standard cherry tomato. They seem to be a little sweeter. Their shape is more elongated than the cherry tomato and resemble an olive or grape, hence the name. These two are full size just waiting to ripen.

I wonder if they are making inroads in other parts of the country.

I also prefer the grape-type tomato over the cherry tomato. I'm growing a variety called 'Sugary' which I also grew last year. Very sweet, very delicious, very much can't wait for them to ripen this year!

The plants I bought this year (and we're in Iowa) said they were cherry tomatoes, but the fruit shape is awfully grapey. I suspect we have grapes, not cherries. We'll see...

Congrats on finally having tomato production!
