Ciliegino Tomatoes are a protected variety grown in southern Italy. They grow in heavy clusters on vines hung from trellises. They're known for their deep red colour and sweetness. If not made into passata they are often dried and make the most tender sweet examples of what a good cherry tomato should be. These have been semi dried in the sun in crates. Semi drying tomatoes keeps the softness of the flesh. They are never tough and hard to chew, tasting fresh and sweet as apposed to the excessive tomato paste flavour of overdried plum tomatoes. These will change your mind about dried tomatoes forever
