Tomatoes

Tomato... edible fruit or vegetable?? Whatever it is ... I like to eat them raw as snack or as salad...
These are shots taken from the Cactus Valley in Cameron Highlands.. Red juicy and ripe tomatoes growing on the vines ;)

My favourite is still the cherry tomatoes from Cameron Highland. The little red, ripe cherry tomatoes that are sweet and delicious even when eaten on their own ... :)

Chen said...

BabeKL,
Yeah, like what u mentioned, the cherry tomatoes from CH is very sweet, not like the on grow in lowland.. The taste is totally different....

glutton rabbit said...

Doc, I tried those cherry tomatoes before. There is a longer shape version of it referred to as 'grape tomatoes' (dunno if such tomatoes exist. Anyway, both of them taste fresh and sweet.

Chen said...

Glutton Rabbit,
Yeap, I have seen & ate those longer version of the tomatoes.. I thought they all shared the same name "cherry tomatoes"? :P Grape Tomatoes ah? Cute name..
