A cherry tomato is a rounded, small-fruited tomato thought to be an intermediate genetic admixture between wild currant-type tomatoes and domesticated garden tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes range in size from a thumb tip up to the size of a golf ball, and can range from being spherical to oblong in shape. Although usually red, other varieties such as yellow, green, and black also exist. The oblong ones often share characteristics with plum tomatoes, and are known as grape tomatoes.
