Grape Tomatoes

Because of their name, Grape tomatoes resemble the size and shape of a grape. They have crunchy skin, low water content and a sweet juicy interior. These little gems are great to snack on or toss in a salad for colour and 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.
