Cherry Tomato

Besides strawberries, another product to look out for in Cameron Highlands is the Cherry Tomatoes (my favourite) ..

I love the cherry tomatoes from Cameron Highlands. The little red coloured, ripe cherry tomatoes (in various sizes and shapes) are sweet and delicious, unlike the one found in the local market in "lowland"(which are sour). That's why I only buy cherry tomatoes in Cameron Highlands and not elsewhere :)

Is this the so called "Grape Tomato"? (refering to the elongated, oblong-shaped cherry tomato).

Dried Cherry Tomatoes. This is the first time I see such product. Never thought there are such things called dried or preserved tomato. Hahhahha.... might be I sua ku loh..

greenpasture said...

Hi, Chen. Greeting.
The tomatoes look really delicious. I prefer to eat this type of tomatoes fresh, like eating an apple, or as part of salad bowl, and they are good to be part of sandwiches fillings too.

nyonyapenang said...

read in lil'joy's earlier post - cherry tomatoes stuffed with chopped prunes. sedap loh. ;)

Chen said...

gulp down all the tomatoes? that's a lot leh... but it's indeed nice to munch (or gulp?) the cherry tomatoes..

Chen said...

wah wah.. I can imagine that..

The dried cherry tomatoes ah.. they add in sugar woh, like the other dried/preserved fruits --> so definitely will be sweeter than the fresh cherry tomatoes :)

I like to eat it fresh too.. Can taste the original sweet taste of the tomatoes :)

Another excellent way of eating the tomatoes :)
