More About Cherry Tomatoes

How to Select

Choose cherry tomatoes with firm, bright skins and a fresh, tomato-y scent. Seriously, like all tomatoes, cherry tomatoes should smell distinctly like you hope they'll taste.

How to Store

Like all tomatoes, cherry tomatoes dislike a chill. Keep cherry tomatoes at room temperature for the best flavor and to avoid the mealy texture that can result from putting them in the refrigerator. I like to keep them in a bowl on the counter for super easy, healthful snacking.

How to Prepare

Small tomatoes are great to toss in salads or with pasta for a fresh, summer flavor. Sauteed "bursted" tomatoes are fantastic with pasta or as a side dish.
