Original Message My experience w/grape tomatoes
Jasmine- I tried the "Christmas Grape"
variety by Burpee last year. In the
grocery store-bought tomatoes I have
tried, grapes tend to be firmer-fleshed
and much sweeter than the cherries. I
personally don't like the cherries, but
I'll tear up some grape tomatoes!
Anyway, the home-grown variety I tried
last year was nothing like what I have
gotten in the store. They are larger,
and essentially the same as the cherry
variety. I don't know if there is a
trick I missed in harvesting, but if I
waited for the red color, the tomatoes
were bigger than quarters, whereas the
store-boughts are slightly larger than
dimes.(circumfrence) Still had great
flavor, but the texture/firmness of the
store-bought version was not there.
