Purchasing

The best Large Red Cherry Tomatoes to purchase are those that have rich, deep reds. Large Red Cherry Tomatoes you purchase should be well shaped, smooth skinned and without wrinkles, cracks, bruises, or soft spots. A puffy appearance is not desirable either, as it often signifies a subpar flavor.
