The cherry tomato is a type of small round tomato believed to be an intermediate genetic admixture between wild currant-type tomatoes and domesticated garden tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes range in size of a golf ball, and can range from spherical to slightly oblong in shape.
Packed with vitamin C, a cherry tomato boosts immunity and acts as an antioxidant. It is also used in beauty care for both skin and hair. The Lycopene in cherry tomato naturally protects the skin from sun and acts as a sunblock.
Storage and Uses:
Keep cherry tomatoes at room temperature for the best flavor and to avoid the mealy texture that can result from putting them in the refrigerator. You can keep them in a bowl on the counter for super easy, healthful snacking. At room temperature, they will keep for up to three days.
