Red Sweet 100 cherry tomatoes are available year round.
Red Sweet 100 tomatoes are a hybrid variety of Cherry tomatoes. At their natural botanical core, Cherry tomato plants synthesise nutrients, pigments and secondary metabolites. These include the green pigment chlorophyll, the yellow pigment, beta carotene, the red pigment lycopene and the colourless, yet bitter glycoalkaloid, tomatine. Maturity of the fruit directly influences the level of these compounds within the fruit. Chlorophyl and tomatine are found in high concentrations during the first stages of maturity, mechanisms that tomato plants use to protect against predators prior to ripening. Mature fruit swing the pendulum toward high levels of carotene and lycopene, pigments that are also responsible for flavor. The plant's life cycle is an exercise in the art of survival. Now that the fruits are rich with sugars that have been converted from sunlight, its palatable flavors invite predators and act as a device to promote seed dispersal and the livelihood of future tomato plants.
Red Sweet 100 tomatoes were bred for sweetness, thus they contain a high concentration of genes that will develop a powerfully sweet-when-ripe tomato. The result is a tiny one ounce globe of scarlet colored fruit containing a rich depth of flavor and sweetness.
Red Sweet 100 tomatoes can be used in any given recipe, fresh, hot or cold, calling for Cherry tomatoes or simply, tomatoes. More importantly though, their first and foremost use is for fresh eating - they are known as the "snacking tomato". Fresh Sweet 100 tomatoes are quintessential salad and salsa tomatoes. Mature fruits can also be blanched, pureed and made into soups and granitas. Complimentary ingredients include citruses, especially lemon and lime varieties, seafood such as scallops, shrimp, crab and fish, grilled and roasted meats and poultry, mild and bitter salad greens, olive oil, vinaigrettes, young, milky cheeses, eggs, cream, hazelnuts, pine nuts, avocados, basil, pineapple, mint and cilantro.
Red Sweet 100 tomatoes have a brief history trail that began in the 19th century in Greece with a monk and some newly discovered tomato seeds. When they were first introduced to the greater public in the early 20th century, they received great fanfare from gardeners. Though Cherry tomatoes, by botanical classification, precede the larger common tomatoes of modern centuries, they have been considered less worthy of planting as a single tomato plant should bear large quantities of fruit. Enter the Sweet 100 tomato. The plants produce prolific amounts of fruit that grow in clusters on branches - easy to pick, high yielding and superiorly sweet. Improved varieties of the Sweet 100 tomato have led to greater disease resistance, which inherently increases yield as well. The name Sweet 100 is a marketing name used to give the tomato memorable presence to consumers.
