Through organic farming, a city farmer produces a unique tomato type known as the 'Cherry Tomato.' The exceptional tomatoes, according to sources, are worth Rs 400 to Rs 600 per kilogramme and produce throughout the year. Another advantage of this tomato is that it produces throughout the year for the farmers that cultivate it. Tomatoes are in high demand not just in the state or country, but also internationally.

Ambika Patel, a farmer, has produced this tomato variety and has been selling it to cities across the state for several years. Patel said that he had done extensive study on how to grow tomatoes organically. He experimented with many tomato kinds and discovered that the cherry tomato was the most beneficial.

According to Patel, this tomato is also known as a hybrid tomato or a tomato with a high vitamin content. These tomatoes may also be grown in a polyhouse during rainy days, and their use normally increases when regular tomatoes are no longer available.

"It is not difficult to grow cherry tomatoes. It's also simple to cultivate in the fields. The benefits of these tomatoes include their tiny size, similar sour flavour to regular tomatoes, and high nutrient content, according to Patel.

According to farmer Ambika Patel, this tomato is not only unusual in look, flavour, and price, but it is also packed in a unique method. It is packed and preserved with the same care as grapes.

The unique thing about cherry tomatoes is that they are not only easy to grow or cultivate, but they can also be germinated in a tray or a pit. For enough moisture, it can also be farmed using irrigation or a drop sprinkling system. The good news is that, because of their tiny size, their sourness is comparable to that of a large tomato, but their vitamin content is significant.
