The mysterious origin of Cherry Tomato
In Israel say that they invented the Cherry although this is more than doubtful and much discussed by some experts because it is believed that Cherry tomato is the father of the traditional tomatoes and there is evidence of its existence before 1948. It is true that the Israelites have developed some Commercial varieties but most have been developed elsewhere.
Without going further the Santorini variety of Greece that to this day has hardly undergone modifications and this was introduced in Greece in 1818 and the first signs of its cultivation transfer us to the year 1875. In turn it is believed that the Santorini was brought of Egypt so the Egyptians could equally claim the origin of the fruit.
The more official history tells us that we must go back to the Aztec Mexico of the XV century to find the origin of the fruit and that the first tomatoes planted in Europe were yellow Cherries in the sixteenth century.
