Tomatoes are edible berries in the nightshade family. Vine tomatoes are an indeterminate variety meaning that they don't stop growing: the fruits of a single plant mature at different rates and must be harvested separately. This careful attention to only harvesting ripe fruit results in fuller flavor with more sugar and aroma. Vine tomatoes are medium-sized and comparable in flavor to Campari tomatoes which are notable for their juicy texture, high sugar content, and low acidity.
Uses: Vine tomatoes are excellent in salads, as a topping for bruschetta, and paired with sashimi. Roast tomatoes whole with olive oil for an delicious accompaniment to steaks and eggs. Use these savory-sweet tomatoes in sandwiches alongside your favorite fillings such as egg, avocado, and bacon.
