Among the darn good red orbs you'll find at your neighborhood Trader Joe's are our Pearl Tomatoes on the Vine. These are snack-sized tomatoes that are allowed to mature longer on the vine than most commercially available tomatoes - more maturation time means more robust flavor due to higher sugar content. They are still On The Vine when they're packed for us; it’s your job to cut them from their vines and free them to bring great flavor and color to your culinary creations.
Trader Joe's Pearl Tomatoes on the Vine are grown with the aid of busy bumble bees for pollination and ladybugs for pest management. Use them absolutely anywhere you'd use tomatoes - their bold, ripe flavor will add personality to any recipe. The price and size will vary depending upon where you live. You'll find them in our fresh produce section.
*Ounces, price and availability may vary by region. Currently Trader Joe's Pearl Tomatoes on the Vine are $2.49 in our Texas, New Mexico and Colorado stores and $2.29 in our West Coast, East Coast, Midwest and Southeast stores.
