Cherry tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum) are named like this for their similar colour, shape taste and overall appearance to cherries. They can be eaten all year round.

They have a diameter from 1 to 3 cm, and their weight goes between 10 to 15 grams. Their taste is less acid and sweeter than regular tomatoes. They are usually eaten raw although they can also be cooked.

Depending on the type, they vary in shape and size: spherical or slightly oblong. There also are different kinds of tomato, usually red, yellow, green or black.
