Grape and Cherry Tomatoes at Our Backyard – Pet and Hobby 3

Two grape tomatoes ready to harvest

We have some small projects in our backyard for this summer, one of projects is to grow tomatoes in the plastic pots. There are two type of tomatoes in our projects:
- grape tomatoes with two varieties and - the cherry tomato

Yes, the size and shape look like the grapes that why we call as grape tomatoes. They are growing and producing fruits well in the environment such as:
- little bit acid (about 6 pH) soils
- loose and nutritious soil
- full sun (about 12 hours under sun)
- some amount of water

A cherry tomato, green stage

The size is small like grape tomatoes, but cherry tomatoes are round shape. It is said that the cherry tomato is hybrid of wild and domestic tomatoes from currant and garden varieties.

Cherry tomatoes are quite sweeter than grape tomatoes. Health benefit of cherry tomatoes like other fruits and vegetables:
- improve healthy hair and skin
- may lower weight
- increasing energy


The grape tomato, a different variety

From saplings to first harvest will take time about two months or little more. One plant and stems produce a lot of tomatoes.

The color changes from green to yellow and then to red by days. Very easy to pick when tomatoes getting red.

We may find both cherry and grape tomatoes in many grocery stores. The price quite reasonable.

Which one do you like? Cherry or grape tomatoes?

  2. Hello Tanza, What I eat a lot at the moment are the little cherry tomatoes and I always have them with me on a nature walk. Are also very healthy so I go for the cherry tomatoes.

  9. I like cherry and grape tomatoes. I am not successful in growing tomatoes. They are easily infested with pests.

  15. Tanza, Actually my favorite tomatoes are of the heirloom variety. However, my second choice is a toss up between grape and cherry tomatoes. Hothouse tomatoes just don't have any flavor. Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
