Cherry tomatoes are a type of small tomato that is often round or oval in shape. They are usually red, but can also be yellow, green, or even black.
Cherry tomatoes are planted from seed and typically take about two months to mature. Once they are ready to harvest, cherry tomatoes can be used in a variety of dishes, from salads to pasta sauces. In addition to being delicious, cherry tomatoes are also a good source of vitamins A and C.
While they are available year-round at most grocery stores, cherry tomatoes are especially abundant in the summer months.
