WHERE TO FIND

Tiny toma­toes are wait­ing for you in the pro­duce aisle! Cherry and grape va­ri­eties rep­re­sent the larger end of the spec­trum. As grow­ing sea­son un­folds, avail­abil­ity of smaller va­ri­eties in­creases. Come sum­mer, you’ll find toma­toes as small as cur­rants in gar­dens, farm­ers mar­kets, and some gro­cery stores.

HOW TO STORE

Store just as you would any other tomato, which means the fridge is off- lim­its. Don’t be fooled by their small size—they come with a sturdy, firm skin that gives them last­ing power on the kitchen counter.

CHERRY VS. GRAPE

These two va­ri­eties are roughly the same size, although grape toma­toes’ ob­long shape gives them some visual dis­tinc­tion. Cherry toma­toes are juicier and sweeter than grape toma­toes, whose dense flesh makes them ex­cel­lent for longer cook­ing.
