|Food Buzz: History of Tomatoes|
Yellow Cherry tomatoes possess an inherently lower level of acid in their flesh versus Red Cherry tomatoes. Thus, if the tomato plant successfully converts enough sunlight into sugars, it will create naturally sweeter fruit. The quintessential Yellow Cherry tomato will be tender firm, thin-skinned with two seed cavities carrying miniscule edible seeds within its savory sweet liquid gel flesh.
Yellow Cherry tomatoes are available during the summer months.
Yellow Cherry tomatoes carry a recessive mutant gene that is responsible for the fruit's coloring. Unlike Red Cherry tomatoes, Yellow Cherry tomatoes have reduced levels of chlorophyll and they are absent of detectable anthocyanins, the compound responsible for the red pigment in food plants. The yellow coloring is also a direct result of the fruits containing high levels of yellow carotenoids (carotene) and flavonoids in the skin.
Yellow Cherry tomatoes can be used in any recipe calling for Cherry tomatoes. They can also replace larger varieties in fresh and raw dishes. Be careful to note their level of sweetness before use.
