Sunripe Organic Sweet Grape Tomatoes come in several handy clam shell containers, as well as bulk boxes for food service or repacking. The container used for this review is a one pint 10 OZ container, which are 12 count or 15 count grape tomatoes. Again though, Sunripe offers organic grape tomatoes in other sizes, including, a one quart 6 count or 9 count clam shell container and a 2 pound 6 count clam shell container. Quickly, the count refers to how many grape tomatoes it takes to make an ounce. So, the 10 OZ container used for this review had approximately 120 to 150 sweet grape tomatoes.
One hundred to a hundred and fifty sweet, crunchy, no-squirt organic grape tomatoes are waiting for you in each 10 Oz container. Unlike cherry tomatoes, and even the occasional Roma tomato, grape tomatoes don’t squirt when you bite into them. And that’s even with a tougher skin than cherry or Roma tomatoes. Sunripe Sweet Grape Tomatoes make a nice crunch when you bite into them. The skin is hearty, yet it isn’t so tough that it detracts from eating them. In fact, they’re fun to eat. So, it can be said eating them is more enjoyable than eating the sometimes messy cherry tomatoes or the much larger Roma tomatoes. Also, grape tomatoes are sweeter than both cherry tomatoes and Roma tomatoes. Almost assuredly, all of the above reasons are why they are gaining in popularity with consumers.
