cherry berry tomato.

We call them cherry berry tomatoes because they’re about that size: about or a little larger than aratilis. Whenever we go up North, we snack on these tiny delights along the road which are much more abundant than the blackberries but seem to be as wild. They just grow where they like. And they share the same vulnerabilities: passing kids, birds.. visitors 🙂 the farmers take them for granted so it’s been a challenge to propagate intentionally. Still, we’re sure it’s fed many a farmer too absorbed in her garden to go cook herself a meal.

We’ve been told they’re the sweetest cherry tomatoes one has ever tasted. It’s not guaranteed though because nature has the upper hand in its breeding at this time (and the sweeter ones definitely get eaten). Interestingly, it’s not so popular among restaurants because they say they’re too small. Also, full disclosure– for every few ripe ones we do remove a green sister or so. They’re attached at the vine until a market decides their fate. Haven’t found a way to use them yet. (Any ideas?) Save them! Save them! hehe 🙂 So it’s wonderful when we see you guys enjoy them with the same wild delight we have at the farms! Thanks @manilabake for the photo taken with glee. @bakerstreetbreadandlove
Made a great bruschetta type breakfast with basil and bean spread aside from using it in her gorgeous foccacia. @loveandbutterprovisions made this tasty looking tabbouleh with our parsley and some quinoa. Aaand we spied birthday girl @lakapati made a yummy looking pasta in a story as fleeting as nature’s flavors.
