Cherry Roma Tomato - The Baby Roma

This cherry tomato combines the popularity of "grape" tomatoes with the spicy sweet flavor of the heirloom Roma tomatoes and voila! Here is the best grape tomato available, with heavy production of 1" long plum-shaped fruits that keep well for extended periods.  Addictive, so even though each plant has an incredibly heavy fruit set, make sure to grow more than one plant!

History

Tomatoes were grown as a crop in Mexico and Peru in pre-Columbian times, but the early history of domestication is not well known (most likely in Mexico). In Europe, tomatoes were grown as ornamentals (thought to be poisonous) and became popular as a food only in the 18th century. 

Uses

Raw or cooked the tomato is one of the most widely used and versatile foods from your garden. Use fresh in salads, sandwiches, and salsas. Cooked in sauces and stews. Can be stuffed, dried, puree, paste or powdered. The uses are endless!

Growing Tip

Tomatoes suffer more transplant shock than other vegetables, but you can minimize this by hardening them off for a week or two first. This means setting them outdoors in their pots in a protected place so that they get some warm sun, a little gentle wind, and even some cool (not freezing) nights. This will help them adjust to some of the stresses of real life before having their roots transplanted into the ground.
