Cherry Tomato

Cherry Tomato

About the size of a cherry, these sweet, juicy tomatoes make a perfect snack. The skin is light and crisp, while the inside is sweet and juicy. Cherry tomatoes on the vine continue to ripen and offer a fresh-from-the-garden flavour.

Merchandising Tip

Consumers buy tomatoes based on appearance and firmness so take care to avoid bruising. Display on one layer and keep at room temperature to ensure the juiciest and ripest flavour. Positioning tomatoes next to avocadoes on a dry table works well and creates colour contrast. Many consumers do not know that tomatoes should not be refrigerated so try using signage to explain that refrigeration stops the ripening process and affects the flavour.
