Tomato - Cherry

Cherry tomatoes - packed full of flavour and nutrition - range in size from thumb size to golf ball size. They are round and red with glossy skins. Tomatoes originated in Central and South America, and have been cultivated by Mexicans for over 2,000 years.

Flavour

The sweet, tangy and juicy all-round appeal of cherry tomatoes makes them ideal for snacking.

Nutrition

Cherry tomatoes are high in phytochemicals including antioxidants and lycopene, which may significantly reduce the risk of cancer and circulatory ailments.
