Types of Tomatoes

Everyday Food, July/August 2003

Beefsteak
Named for their hearty taste, these large, meaty tomatoes are great sliced on sandwiches or burgers.

Holland
Medium in size, these all-purpose tomatoes are available year-round. They are perfect for grilling.

Plum
Because these are less watery than other tomatoes and have fewer seeds, they're used for sauces, stews, and drying.

Cherry
About an inch in diameter, cherry tomatoes are tart and are also available year-round.

Grape
Named for their shape and size, these very sweet tomatoes are kid-friendly -- they make great snacks.
