Grape tomatoes are bite-size oval shaped fruits â€“ ideal for lunch boxes & salads. So easy for kids to eat. Select tomatoes depending on when you intend to use them. Choose very ripe tomatoes to use soon after purchase and greener tomatoes for longer storage. Tomatoes should be firm with unmarked skin and no soft spots. Do not refrigerate tomatoes except for cherry or grape tomatoes. Our favourite varieties include grape kumato, russo bruno or black Russian and heirloom varieties. Tomatoes are available all year round but are best in the summer months.
