Cherry tomatoes originally can be traced back to ancient South America. The indigenous people of Peru and Ecuador were the first to cultivate these tiny tomatoes, which were initially much smaller than the cherry tomatoes we know today. Over time, cherry tomatoes spread throughout the world and are now a popular ingredient in many cuisines.
In addition to their delicious taste, cherry tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, as well as antioxidants that can help prevent certain types of cancer. Plus, they’re low in calories, making them a perfect snack for anyone trying to maintain a healthy diet.
Did you know that they were initially called “love apples”? This is because they were believed to have aphrodisiac properties and were considered an exotic delicacy. It wasn’t until the 19th century that they were renamed “tomatoes” and became a common ingredient in everyday cooking.
