I knew tomatoes were getting smaller but I didn't expect them to shrink even further than the so called cherry size. Not that cherry tomatoes look anything like a cherry but I guess it's a reasonable description. I used to like beef tomatoes but transferred my affections to the next size down and then further down to the cherry equivalent. They so much sweeter. However, the latest supermarket display now includes berry tomatoes, minute fruit that is sweeter still. I just had to take a photograph. Trust me when I say that the 'big' ones are cherry toms and the titches are the new (to me) berries. I can't stop eating them. Every time I pass the dish I help myself to a handful of tiny berries.
